    1. Assessment of Mandatory Fees

      All students will be subject to mandatory fees. Mandatory fees will be assessed based on total enrolled hours, in-classroom and “Fully at a Distance” courses.
    2. Determination of Mandatory Fees

      Campus specific assessment of mandatory fees will be based on the physical campus in which a majority of a student’s in-classroom credit hours are held, except in the case in which there is an equal number of in-classroom credit hours on two campuses. If a student has an equal number of in-classroom credit hours on two campuses, the student’s listed “Home Campus” will be used for fee assessment purposes. Residential students will be assessed mandatory fees for the campus where they reside.  Students who are registered for all “Fully at a Distance” courses will not be assessed campus specific mandatory fees.
