Fee Contingency Plan.
Designed for use by the Board of Governors of California Community Colleges in the development of a fee contingency plan, this report presents information on student fees and charges in California and other states. In section A, student charges and their effects are examined in 10 California community college districts. Section B reviews fees and charges and the use of revenues at the University of California and the California State University. Policies in other states are examined in section C with respect to tuition and financial aid in postsecondary education. As the basis for predicting the likely impact of various fee policies, section D outlines research findings and the experiences of New York, Virginia, and California with fee increases. The consequences of four different fee alternatives are presented in section E, along with financial aid techniques, and a discussion of the implications, advantages, and disadvantages of these alternatives. This section includes estimates of enrollment losses arising from specified fee charges and their impact on different income, age, and ethnic groups and on male and female enrollments. An attachment sets forth a series of economic conditions and their probable impact on community college fees; alternative methods of imposing fees and charges; possible changes in the provision of financial aid; uses to which the revenues from fees and charges could be put; and ways of levying existing authorized fees more equitably.
