This executive order is issued pursuant to Education Code Section 89035 and Board of Trustees Standing Orders, Section II(i) and consonant with Executive Order 1054.

Effective summer quarter 2013, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona is authorized to establish a mandatory Student Success Fee at the rate of $74 per quarter, or $222 per academic year.

Revenue from this fee will go toward the following three (3) priorities which comprise the campus' student success initiative:

Program Rate Per Quarter
Academic Support $33.25

$21.50

Student Engagement Support

$19.25

Total
$74/Quarter

The fee will be increased annually over the succeeding three years in the following amounts: $102.00 per quarter in 2012-14; $129.00 per quarter in 2015-16; and, $138.25 per quarter in 2016-17. After fiscal year 2016-17, the annual increase in the fee rate shall not exceed the Higher Education Price Index. The president is delegated authority under EO 1054 to increase, decrease, suspend or eliminate this fee as needed.

The fee will be assessed to improve student classroom experience, support academic success, enrich the path to graduation, strengthen instructional technology services, and encourage student engagement. Campus constituencies will be consulted on the oversight of revenues received from this fee and the campus will develop a plan for outcomes and accountability to ensure proper management of fee revenues.

Board of Trustees fee policy requires that the revenue generated by this fee be reviewed annually by the student fee advisory committee and reported to the Chancellor's Office in the annual fee survey. If balances exist without an expenditure plan, the campus may be asked to reduce or suspend the fee until such time that all balances are spent on the priorities indicated in this executive order.

In accordance with Section 89721(l) of the Education Code, revenue collected from student fees shall be deposited in a local trust account.
