Each UC Campus (including UCSF) has a student committee that oversees the usage of student fees and works closely with each campus’s executive leadership, management, and staff to advise on the management and allocation of the Student Services Fee (SSF) fund. Reporting to the Chancellor under the Division of Student Affairs, the Committee on Student Fees and Budget Review (CSF) is the University of California, Berkeley’s Student Fee Advisory Committee in charge of overseeing the $47.5 million in Student Service Fee Funding. Members of CSF sit on the Chancellor’s Advisory Council for Student Service Fees (CACSSF).
CSF currently oversees all Campus based fees that utilize student funding and has influence over campus units, helping make recommendations on new and ongoing allocations. Each academic year, CSF assesses campus units who receive funding from student fees and reports on their current activities and financial health. Past evaluations include Recreational Sports, University Health Services (UHS), Cal Performances, Career Center, and University of California Police Department (UCPD).
CSF is composed entirely of UC Berkeley students and includes 1 Chair, 2 Vice Chairs (external and internal), and 8-12 Budget Analysts. Recruitment of new analysts occurs every semester. More information and our application can be found on our recruitment page.
On this website, you will find current and historical information about the allocation and use of student fees and other campus fees, past CSF recommendations, standing policies, as well as links to campus and UC-wide bodies that are involved with the work of CSF.
