While Student Services Fees are levied by the UC Office of the President, Campus-based fees were mostly voted to be paid for by students through a referenda process. Thus, all UC campuses pay the same amount for Student Services Fees, while Campus-Based Fees vary by campus. For example, while UC Davis pays $1,700+/year in Campus-Based Fees, UC Merced students pay less than $1000/year.
