Recommended ActionIt is recommended that the Board of Trustees adopt a nonresident tuition fee rate of $265 per unit and a capital outlay surcharge fee rate of $12 per unit for FY 2019-2020; and direct staff to promulgate these charges via the 2019-2020 catalog, schedule of classes, and other appropriate materials.

Background Narrative:


Education Code Section 76140 requires California community college districts to establish a nonresident tuition fee rate by Board action prior to February 1 each year for the succeeding academic year.

For fiscal year 2018-2019, the District’s nonresident tuition fee rate is $258 per unit. The calculated statewide average rate for fiscal year 2019-2020 is $265 per unit. The calculated District average rate for FY 2019-2020 is $254. The District’s colleges recommend using the calculated statewide average rate of $265 for FY 2019-2020.

Education Code Section 76141 also authorizes California Community College Districts to charge nonresident students, except for AB 540 nonresident students who have attended high school in California and received a high school diploma or its equivalent, a capital outlay surcharge amount not to exceed the amount expended for capital outlay in the preceding year, divided by the total full-time equivalent students.

For FY 2018-2019, the District’s capital outlay surcharge fee rate is $11 per unit. The District’s calculated rate is $12 per unit for FY 2019-2020. The District’s colleges recommend using the calculated rate of $12 per unit for fiscal year 2019-2020.

Upon approval, staff will promulgate these charges via the 2019-2020 catalog, schedule of classes, and other appropriate materials.
