The Committee on Student Fees and Budget Review (CSF) is a Chancellor’s Advisory Committee reporting to the Chancellor, under the Division of Student Affairs. CSF works closely with campus executive leadership, management, and staff to advise on the management and allocation of the $37 million Student Services Fee (SSF) fund.

The Student Services Fee is a UC system-wide mandatory fee charged to all registered undergraduate and graduate students. SSF funds may be used to support services that benefit students and which are complementary to, but not a part of, the instructional program.

CSF is charged with evaluating SSF funded units and making recommendations on new and ongoing allocations. Each academic year, CSF assesses select campus units 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 8-12 Budget Analysts, 1 Coordinator, and 2 Co-Chairs. 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.
