Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC)

The Student Fees Advisory Committee (SFAC) is charged with recommending funding allocations for student services fees. These fees fund units, programs, and services within that division. SFAC is composed of nine voting members: five students, two faculty members and two staff members.

The committee is advised by four non-voting members, the dean of students or designee, the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) business administrator, the director of Planning and Budgeting, and the Student Government (SG) student body president.

SFAC meets several times during the latter half of the fall semester and several more times in early spring. In the fall, members receive a comprehensive orientation designed to familiarize them with SFAC's operating and budget procedures and hear budget requests from DSA departments and student organizations which receive student service fees in support of their goals for the next fiscal year.

Following these presentations, SFAC goes into deliberation. Once the deliberations are finalized, SFAC forwards its allocation recommendations, as well as a recommendation on the amount of the SFAC fee for the following year, to the DSA president and vice president.

SFAC received its authority via the Texas Administrative Code (Education Code; Chapter 54; Section 54.5062).

As with other university committees, boards and task forces, the Student Fees Advisory Committee governing documents ensure they are operating in an effective way to meet their goals and responsibilities. For your reference, access the SFAC By-Laws online.

SFAC plays a very important role, making recommendations on behalf of all students at University of Houston-Clear Lake. Their recommendations directly affect campus life and the futures of many departments and programs.
