Chancellor’s Office Student Fee Handbook

Policies and guidelines pertaining to student fees, for both credit and noncredit students can be found in the Chancellor's Office Student Fee Handbook, a resource that is maintained and published by the CCCCO Office of the General Counsel (Legal Affairs Division). A link to the handbook is posted on the homepage of the CCCCO Office of the General Counsel, and also accessible by clicking here, or by copying the URL provided below into your web browser.

The Student Fee Handbook is comprised of four chapters: Basic Law on Student Fees (Chapter 1), Course Fees (Chapter 2), Fees for Services (Chapter 3), and Prohibited Practices (Chapter 4). In addition, a detailed appendix covering instructional materials and regulations is also included in the handbook.

Districts are encouraged to review the guidelines described in the handbook in conjunction with local policies concerning student fees. As quoted directly from the memorandum attached to the handbook, Districts should ensure that all their fees are authorized and appropriate in amount and that students are properly informed of their rights and responsibilities regarding district fees.
