Students are required to provide written notice to the Chancellor of the University of their Intent to Drop.

State of California Student Tuition Recovery (S.T.R.F.)

California law requires upon enrollment a fee be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition: California State Code § 94343.  These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund, hereinafter referred to as S.T.R.F. S.T.R.F. is a special fund created by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. This is a mandatory requirement of this institution and all law schools similarly created.

 


 

Excerpts from the California Private Post secondary and Vocational Education Reform Act, dated January 1, 1998:

Ҥ 94945 - STUDENT TUITION RECOVERY FUND ASSESSMENTS; ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS; EXPENDITURE PLANS; EXEMPTION; ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES (This section becomes operative January 1,1999)

    • The council shall assess each institution that collects any moneys in advance of rendering services.
      • The amount assessed each institution shall be calculated only for those students who are California residents and who are eligible to be reimbursed from the fund. It shall be based on the actual amount charged each of the students for total course cost, regardless of the portion that is prepaid. The assessments shall be as follows:
        • For a total course cost of one cent ($0.01) to two thousand nine hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($2,999.99), inclusive, the assessment is two dollars and fifty cents ($2.50) per student.
        • For a total course cost of three thousand dollars ($3,000) to five thousand nine hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($5,999.99), inclusive, the assessment is three dollars and fifty cents ($3.50) per student.
        • For a total course cost of six thousand dollars ($6,000) to eight thousand nine hundred ninety-nine dollars and ninety-nine cents ($8,999.99), inclusive, the assessment is four dollars and fifty cents ($4.50) per student.
        • For a total course cost of nine thousand dollars ($9,000) or more, the assessment is five dollars and fifty cents ($5.50) per students.
      • The council shall levy additional reasonable assessments only if they are required to ensure that sufficient funds are available to satisfy the anticipated costs of paying student claims pursuant to Section 94944
      • The assessments shall be paid in to the Student Tuition Recovery Fund and credited to the appropriate account in the fund, and deposits shall be allocated, except as otherwise provided for in this chapter, solely for the payment of valid claims to students. Unless additional reasonable assessments are required, no assessments for the degree-granting post secondary educational institution account shall be levied during any fiscal year if, as of June 30 of the prior fiscal year, the balance in that account of the fund exceeds one million dollars ($1,000,000). Unless additional reasonable assessments are required, no assessments for the vocational educational institution account shall be levied during any fiscal year if, as of June 30 of the prior fiscal year, the balance in- that account exceeds three million dollars ($3,000,000). However, regardless of the balance in the fund, assessments shall be made on any newly approved institution. Notwithstanding Section 13340 of the Government Code, the moneys so deposited in the fund are continuously appropriated to the council for the purpose of paying claims to students pursuant to Section 94944.
    • The council may deduct from the fund the reasonable costs of administration of the tuition recovery program authorized by Section 94944 and this section. The maximum amount of administrative costs that may be deducted from the fund, in a fiscal year, shall not exceed one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) from the 48 degree-granting postsecondary educational institution account and three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) from the vocational educational institution account, plus the interest earned on money in the fund that is credited to the fund. Prior to the council’s expenditure of any amount in excess of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) from the fund for administration of the tuition recovery program, the council shall develop a plan itemizing that expenditure. The plan shall be subject to the approval of the Department of Finance.

      Institutions, except for schools of cosmetology licensed pursuant to Article 8 (commencing with Section 7362) of Chapter 10 of Division 3 of the Business and Professions Code and institutions that offer vocational or job training programs, that meet the student tuition indemnification requirements of a California state agency, or that demonstrate to the council that an acceptable alternative method of protecting their students against loss of prepaid tuition has been established, shall be exempted from this section.
    • Reasonable costs in addition to those permitted under subdivision (b) may be deducted from the fund for any of the following purposes:
      1. To make and maintain copies of student records from institutions which dose
      2. To reimburse the council or a third party serving as the custodian of records
