To request approval of proposals for new, or changes to existing, student fees and specific charges, including Study Abroad embedded course and travel fees.
In accordance with Policy BT06 University Student Course-Related Fees and Specific Charges, all new, or changes to existing, student fees and specific charges may be submitted for consideration upon recommendation of the budget executive responsible for the unit proposing the fee. Fee proposals and specific charges endorsed by the Executive Vice President and Provost or Senior Vice President for Finance & Business will be considered for approval by the University Budget Officer.
Upon approval, new or modified fees and charges will become effective on July 1 each year as a part of the regular general funds budget.
Changes for fees and specific charges ordinarily will not be considered after the budget for the year becomes operative each July 1.

No form may be used that substitutes for an approved official University form without prior review and approval by the steward of the form/central office, as facilitated by the Office of Systems and Procedures (designated representative of the Corporate Controller). See Policy FN17 Required Use of Approved University Forms Appearing in the General University Reference Utility (GURU) for full details.
GURU PDF forms are designed for use with Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro. Each browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc) has a built-in PDF viewer making it the default PDF viewer without asking users. These built-in viewers do not necessarily support all features required for PDF Forms. Similarly, many calculations are not supported by other stand-alone PDF readers (for example, Nuance). If you experience problems downloading or opening documents, right click on the link on the Forms Locator Screen, select 'Save Link As' (or similar language) and save the file. The document can then be opened in either Adobe Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro from the saved location.
The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader is available for free. Contact your IT support staff person for downloading assistance, if/as needed. An Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) account is also available to all Penn State students, faculty, and staff members, at no cost. Sign up for an Adobe Creative Cloud account at adobe.psu.edu. If Adobe Acrobat Pro better suits your needs, contact your IT support staff person for purchasing and installation assistance.
If you encounter any difficulties, contact the GURU support staff by submitting a Technical Support Form request or by calling the tech support line at 814-863-8592
