Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Student Service Fee Advisory Board

About the Board

The Student Service Fee Advisory Board (SSFAB) is made up of five students and four staff and faculty representatives. The Board meets several times during the beginning half of the Spring semester.

In the spring, Board members receive a comprehensive orientation designed to familiarize them with SSFAB operating procedures and budget procedures. Departments that receive Student Service Fee monies and are level funded are required to submit paperwork to the Board each year.  Departments that are requesting an increase in funding or have a new request will have a 30 minute session with the Board.  The session will include a 10-15 minute presentation from the department requesting funding and a 10-15 minute question and answer session with the Board.  This will give the members a clear understanding of what the department does and its goals for the coming fiscal year.

The Board forwards their allocation recommendations, to the Senior Vice President for Fiscal and Student Affairs. The Board is also responsible for reviewing requests to increase the Student Service Fee, Student Health Center Fee, Recreational Sports Fee and University Center Fee as well as providing recommendations to the Senior Vice President for Fiscal and Student Affairs.

The Board plays a very important role, making recommendations on behalf of all students at Texas A&M-Kingsville. Their recommendations directly affect campus life and the futures of many departments and programs.
