IV:07:07 Miscellaneous Course Fees

The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) must approve all miscellaneous fees. Fees for courses requiring special off-campus facilities or services do not require TBR's approval but should reflect the cost of the facility or service. The following guidelines have been developed regarding course-related fees.

A. Subject to the following provisions, students may be required to purchase or obtain various materials in order to complete requirements for a course (for example: textbooks, workbooks, personal tools and instruments, etc.). These items should be purchased directly by the student.

B. Materials which students may be required to purchase are, in all cases, to be items that remain the property of the student. The department may require various quality and quantity material specifications.

C. Fees for courses requiring special off-campus facilities or services may be charged and should reflect the cost of the facilities or services.
