Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC)

Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC) is a university standing committee charged with advising the administration on the type, amount, and expenditure of compulsory fees for student services, and is required by the Texas Education Code, Section 54.5031. Compulsory fees are fees charged to all students enrolled at an institution. The SFAC Committee is comprised of 9 voting members: five appointed students, two appointed staff members, and two appointed faculty members.  The SFAC Committee meets annually in the fall and spring semesters to determine funding recommendations for the following fiscal year. More information about West Texas A&M University's Student Fee Advisory Committee.
