What is a Student Success Fee?

A “Student Success Fee” is the name given to a type of campus-based, campus-driven, campus-controlled fee designed to enhance the quality of academic programs and the experience of students on a specific campus.

Due to local control, no “Student Success Fee” is identical to any other. Each reflects the priorities of the campus where it is adopted.

A Student Success Fee is not Tuition

All fees are governed by policy, with every effort made to keep student costs to a minimum.

Most students are familiar with tuition fees. Those are the fees that combine with state support to cover the bulk of CSU operating costs – everything from paying a professor’s salary and benefits to keeping the lights on in university buildings. In short, tuition fees (augmented by an approximately equal amount of state support) pay to provide basic student access to a CSU education. These fees are set at the system level.
