Program Fees

“Program Fees” means additional amounts charged to students in select degree programs within colleges, schools or departments, including honors colleges or programs, that demonstrate one or more of the following: higher costs of delivering instruction; the need for or use of special equipment, technology, or key personnel expenses; market conditions.

The University will assess administrative service charge to recover overhead costs incurred by the University. The revenues generated from the Administrative Service Charge (ASC) are used specifically to support overhead costs and administrative services that benefit the entire University, but are not easily assignable to any one unit. Examples include utilities, payroll processing, human resources, information technology, budgeting and procurement.

For more information on Fees, Proposal, and Setting policies visit the ABOR Policies section of this website.
