CMSFs in Terms with Remote Instruction 

The CMSF Committee has recommended, and the Chancellor has approved, guidance that Course Materials & Services Fees should not be assessed for terms in which instruction is wholly online, unless it can be demonstrated that approved materials or services are (a) necessary for the provision of course instruction; and (b) providing value to students commensurate with the fee rate.

Terms with remote instruction, and their approved CMSFs, are as follows:
