Call for Proposals: Miscellaneous Student Fees for FY2022-23

Now accepting Miscellaneous Student Fee (MSF) proposals for FY2022-23

Eligibility

All academic and non-academic units are eligible to propose a new Miscellaneous Student Fee (MSF) for FY2022-23. Please share widely with your departments and programs.

Allowable costs

MSFs may be used to cover the cost of providing non-instructional services or materials to students, including replacement or repair costs of equipment, such as:

  • Rental fees for use of university facilities and equipment
  • Materials costs
  • Administrative service charges
  • Printer usage fees
  • Late fees

Disallowed costs

MSFs cannot be used to cover instructional or other costs directly related to the provision of state-supported courses.

Submitting Proposals

The proposal form for new MSFs, or to increase existing MSFs, beginning in FY2022-23 is now available. Proposals are due to studentfees@berkeley.edu by Friday, February 18, 2022

Approval Process

MSF proposals are reviewed by the Financial Planning & Analysis team and the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Student Services and Fees (CACSSF), which is comprised of students, faculty, and staff. During either review, proposers may be asked to provide additional information or to revise and resubmit the proposal. Once a final recommendation has been made by CACSSF, the proposals are presented to the Chancellor for approval. Final decisions on fee proposals are expected to be announced in late Spring 2022.
