Recommendations for changes to student fees are made by the Student Fee Review Committee [Co-Chaired by Vice Chancellor & Dean for Academic and Student Affairs Doneka Scott and Student Senate President Molly Vanhoy].
The Committee asks for feedback from the Student Senate as a part of its deliberation process, and the recommendations the committee makes are presented to the Chancellor for his approval or modification. The Chancellor then sends a proposal to the NC State Board of Trustees and the UNC System Board of Governors for approval.
