Oregon State University (OSU) has authority to establish fees charged to non-students for services and goods provided by the institution’s departments and units (including Experiment Stations and Extension Offices).

At OSU information is collected from all OSU departments and units that intend to provide a service and charge a fee. The committee reviews all submitted proposals. The approved external fees are compiled into the University External Fee Book for review. Per OSU’s “Policy on University Policies and Standards”, a notice is placed into OSU Today to allow a three week written comment period for these fees.

At OSU, most of the service activity which charges fees externally occurs in Designated Operations 05xxxx or Auxiliary 1xxxxx funds.

For more information about fees charged to non-students, refer to:

  • FIS 518: Sales of Goods and Services
  • FIS 519: Recharge Activities (Internal & External)
