View Full Publication
This report seeks to facilitate the Commission's eventual consideration of a student fee policy for professional degree programs. It includes background information relating to the Commission's past actions on fee policy, statistics on current professional degree program fees at the State University and University and their respective sets of comparison institutions, consideration of possible policy options, and five directives to the Commission staff about gathering further information on the topic:

  1. Consult with representatives of the California State University and the University of California to develop a mutually-agreed upon methodology for determining prior-year expenditures per full-time-equivalent student at the undergraduate and graduate-student levels and for professional degree programs.
  2. Once this methodology is determined, consult with representatives of the State University and the University to gather this expenditure information expeditiously, in time for its presentation at the Commission's December 1994 meeting.
  3. Develop added information and options to present to the Commission to assist it in determining which programs to include in a professional degree program policy.
  4. Continue to obtain information on fees at comparable institutions when possible.
  5. Continue to develop a long-term comprehensive student financial aid policy that addresses the needs of students enrolled in professional degree programs.
The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on June 6, 1994, on recommendation of its Ad Hoc Committee on the Financing and Future of California Higher Education.
