    This what I thought too, after reading the great Zimmer, who is on a hard earned vacation by the way.

    The question that needs to be asked about the USD numbers is the fact that 62% of their income comes from "allocated sources". Allocated sources include student fees (which were $1.6 million for USD and $2.4 for us), but the rest of the "62%' is from institutional funds or state funds. USD had $11+ million in allocated funds (but only 1.6 million from student fees, while SDSU had $8+ million in allocated funds (which included our higher $2.4 million student fees). So does that mean USD's administration is using state funds to subsidize the athletic program? I don't know, but I would sure like to see where those funds come from for the Yotes.

    Post #18 of this thread says that the Argus should do an article on why the USD students should have to bear the burden of the athletics budget, but now that it is apparent that our students pay a greater share than USD, now the Argus should look into “allocated sources” spending at USD? LOL. What happened to the article about the students having to pay so much? What changed?? Why should SDSU students have such high fees?

    The student fees discrepancy is a product of SDSU enrolling approximately 10,500 Full time equivalent students, while USD enrolls about 6,700 FTE students. Not only about are there about 2000 more total students at SDSU, a larger share of our students are full time equivalent, meaning that they are taking at least 15 credits in a semester, therefore paying more in fees.

    After looking at both schools website, USD general activity fee is 53.75 per credit. At SDSU, it's 43.75 per credit. I can't see exactly how each fee is broken down into what is going to athletics vs other services on campus, but Usd students are paying more per credit hour in fees than SDSU students, and I'd be surprised if the rate going to athletics isn't higher as well.

    The Argus fee article misrepresents the per capita impact on each student. We have the larger university, and it would make sense that our fee total is higher.

    Further explanation, USD has 6100 degree seeking (probably at normal credit load) undergraduates as of fall 2017. Sdsu has 9700 degree seeking undergraduates as of fall 2017. 3600 more full time students paying fees will have a large impact on our total number.

    Dividing it out, each degree seeking undergrad at USD student is paying 262 dollars in fees to athletics over a given year. Each degree seeking undergrad at SDSU is paying 247 dollars in athletic fees per year. This calculation doesn't include graduate students, who normally are taking 3-9 credits per semester and contribute far less to the budget than undergrads who are taking twice the class load. This also doesn't include non-degree seeking students, but it does include online/off campus/part time degree seeking students, of which neither SDSU or USD have a large population.
