Item 4 Capital Improvement Trust Fund (CITF)

According to the Florida Senate – 2012, the Capital Improvement Trust Fund (CITF) fee is not to exceed 10 percent of the tuition for resident students or 10 percent of the sum of tuition and out-of-state fees for nonresident students. The CITF is to be used for certain projects or real property acquisitions. Also, it is required that the Division of Bond Finance of the State Board of Administration analyze any proposed fee reductions to the CITF; and that the Board of Governors approve any proposed fee reductions. 

 

Each university is to establish a separate CITF fee and building fee at the main campus of the university. Also, each university is to establish a fee committee to recommend any increase in the fees and that committee is to be composed of students and members appointed by the university president. The university president is to approve committee recommendations, noting that an increase in fees may occur only once each fiscal year. The Board of Governors is to adopt regulations and timetables to implement the fees. 

 

The University of North Florida is proposing an increase in the CITF of $2.00 per credit hour, which would create a total of $8.76 for resident students and non-resident students. The additional dollars will be used on recreational projects. 

 

Vice President Shuman will address the committee and briefly describe the need for each of these selected projects.
