In Wisconsin we have a student technology fee linked to tuition. At my
campus it is 2% and the funding is managed by central IT.
Each campus has their own way of managing the funds. The financial
policy that is used to guide the UW system campuses is available at
I hope this is helpful.

Subject: [CIO] Allocation of Student Technology Fees
One area that I am trying to push here is a rethinking of student
technology fees. Unlike most respondents, we do not charge a fee across
the board to all students, nor do we have a residence halls technology
fee. Instead, we have a fee that is charged on a few courses that some
in senior academic administration members decided (over 10 years ago)
I've pulled all the data I can from Core Data and the Campus Computing
Survey, but our budget office has one more question. In our
environment, that limited fund that I described, only 60% of that fund
gets allocated to the division of Academic Affairs, where the central IT
office is located. Of that 60%, only about 50% of that pool is
allocated to my central IT organization. And most of that is now locked
in to pay our ISP bill.
Our budget office is asking this:
If you have an across the board student technology fee,
how much of the collected fund is allocated to the central
IT organization? I'm not talking about who decides how it
is spent. Where do the funds sit? Then there's a decision process on
how the funds are spent, but some of that information is in Educause
Core Data. We can't tell from the decision process in Core Data who
actually has the money in their budget, and that isn't clear from the
Hope this question makes sense!
