Course Fees are limited to institutional sale to students of equipment, materials,
or ancillary services consumed by the student as a part of the course instruction
where the equipment or material is not readily available for purchase through the
bookstore or other external source. Approval will
not be given for Laboratory or Course Fees that constitute a charge for
the use of institution owned equipment, specimens, software licenses or other microcomputer
application charges for goods or services, or other materials and supplies consumed
in the instruction process, except for certain non-required physical education courses
that involve use of non-state-owned facilities or expensive equipment.
Note: An ancillary service is a general term
used to describe supplemental
or related services associated with a course. Fees which contain this service as
an expense will only be approved when the ancillary service is provided by a vendor
external to OSU or by an OSU unit that is self-supporting (an auxiliary, a designated
operation, or a service center).
