This executive order is issued under the authority granted
by Education Code Sections 89035 and 89700, Standing Orders of the Board of
Trustees, Chapter II, i, and Board of Trustees' Resolution RFIN 03-04-00, and
consonant with Executive Order Number 740.
Effective April 26, 2006, California State University, Stanislaus is authorized
to establish Category III Miscellaneous Course Fees for Geology 2400, 2500, 3053
and 4813. The Geology 2400, 2500 and 4813 fees are established at a fee rate of
$20 and will cover costs that include driver fees, bus fees, bridge tolls, or
museum or park admissions for the class during one or two field trips. The Geology
3053 fee is established at a rate of $45 and will cover costs that include bus
fees or driver fees for three field trips.
Revenue collected from miscellaneous course fees is to be deposited either in
the General Fund or in a local trust account, depending on the nature of the fee.
In accordance with Education Code Section 89721(g), revenue collected may be
deposited in a local trust account where the fee is required of those persons who,
at their option, use the services or facilities, or are provided the materials,
for which the fee is collected. In other words, if the student has the option to
procure the service or materials for which the fee is charged on the open market
or some other way separate from the university and still fulfill the requirements
of the university, the revenue may be deposited in trust. Revenue so deposited
shall be used solely to meet the costs of providing these services, materials, and facilities.
Otherwise, in accordance with Section 89724(a) of the Education Code, revenue
collected from miscellaneous course fees shall be deposited in the State Treasury
and credited to the General Fund for the support of the university in addition to
such other amounts as may be appropriated therefor by the Legislature.
