Page 2 of 9OverviewWith the exception of program fees set by an outside authority and community service course tuition,all student fees are established under statutory authority. State statutes are silent on community servicecourse tuition. Therefore, district boards have sole authority to establish community service coursetuition rates. Authority to set activity fees, incidental fees, professional development seminar /workshop fees and juvenile alcohol and other drug abuse fees statutorily resides with the districtboards. Also, the revenues resulting from sales through enterprise type operations such as bookstoresand cafeterias are not student fees and are to be referred to as student charges rather than studentfees. The 30.00 uniform Application Fee is another example of a charge for a service (processing astudent’s application for admission to a program) rather than a statutorily authorized student fee.The fees authorized by statute are: Associate of Arts/Associate of Science Program Fees Occupational Program Fees Additional Program Fees Fees Set by Outside Authorities Out-of-State Tuition Out-of-State s. 38.14(3) Contract Tuition Out-of-State Distance Education Material Fees Other Student Fees: Activity, Incidental, ParkingEach of these types of fees are defined and discussed in the following chapters, including system-widefee rates.Questions regarding student fees should be directed to:Anna RichterWI Technical College System4622 University AvenueP.O.

Page 6 of 9Fees for instructional materials consumed by students and instructors are required by s. 38.24(1)(c),Wis. Stats. These material fees are to be charged to all students on a uniform basis unless exempted bystate statute, administrative code or WTCS Board action. Fees shall be charged at the attached rates for2022 summer session, 2022 fall and 2023 spring courses.To determine the specific material fee to be charged for an enrollment, first determine if the course isapproved for only "A" hours, “D” hours, "E" hours, or a combination of only "A", “D” and/or "E" hours. Ifno “B” or “C” hours are approved, the material fee category is 00 regardless of the material fee categoryassigned to the instructional area. In this case, the applicable material fee category is 00 and thematerial fee shall be 4.50 regardless of the credit value of the course.If the course’s approval includes any “B” and/or “C” hours, the applicable material fee is determined bythe material fee category assigned to the course’s instructional area. The assigned material fee categorycan be obtained from report INS310 Instructional Area List by Division (see instructions below on how toaccess this report). If the enrollment is for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 credits, refer to corresponding category/creditscell on Uniform Schedule of Material Fee Categories and Fees to determine the fee. If the enrollment isfor any value other than 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 credits, multiply the per credit rate for the assigned material feecategory from Uniform Schedule of Material Fee Categories and Fees times the credit value of thecourse to determine the fee. Round to the nearest 0.01 and the minimum material fee is 4.50.Report INS310 is available online at: https://apps.wtcsystem.edu/wtcs-web/.
