This procedure provides guidelines for the expenditure of student activity/service fees.


Student Activity and Service Fee dollars (restricted funds) are generated by a fee added to each credit semester hour for which students enroll. Traditionally, activities sponsored by the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) and other extracurricular/co-curricular activities and student services providing a direct benefit to students are deemed appropriate for funding from Student Activity/Service Fee dollars. Student Activity/Service Fees collected by Hillsborough Community College will be used in a manner consistent with the Florida Statutes and applicable administrative rules.

A Student Activity/Service Fee Budget Committee (“Budget Committee”) will be appointed annually by the President to develop a proposed budget, which will be submitted to the President’s Cabinet for consideration.

The Budget Committee is comprised of students and faculty and staff, with students constituting at least half of the committee. The Budget Committee will be comprised of 20 voting members (four from each campus):

  • 1 SGA President
  • 1 SGA Representative (Treasurer or other member)
  • 2 Campus Advisory Board (CAB) Members (one faculty/one staff)

The budget will be based on an estimate of total funds generated from the student activity/service fee and an estimate of carry over funds from prior years. If included in the approved budget, expenditures that benefit the student body may be funded from the Student Activity/Service Fee fund.

The Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management facilitates the budget process and will establish a schedule of meetings to be published in October of each year, outlining when the Budget Committee will review and recommend allocations for inclusion in the development of the budget for the next fiscal year. The Budget Committee will finalize and submit its recommendations by March 1 of each year to the College President.
