Section V: Other Methods of Cost Recovery

Several other methods of cost recovery may be appropriate for some Extension programs and services.

  1. Contracts developed with the Office of Continuing Education

    The Office of Continuing Education has processes to facilitate delivering courses, workshops, and distance learning for academic credit in non-traditional settings. A contract and pricing formula includes appropriate overhead rates for tuition, Office of Continuing Education, OSU Extension and funds for the unit(s) involved to benefit. Extension¹s share of overhead charges collected by Continuing Education is 4.33%.

  2. Membership Fees

    Membership fees, such as a statewide 4-H member fee, are not part of OSU Extension's cost recovery strategies. If, at some point, membership fees are considered a viable option, OSU Extension Administrative Cabinet provide leadership for the development of guidelines and distribution of such funds.
