Events for non-profit organizations whose purposes are to improve the general welfare of the local community, and charge no fees or admission for such events will fall under the Group I category.

Fees for commercial photography and motion picture filming are not limited to the above fee schedule and may include overall campus use fees as negotiated with the applicant based upon overall impact on the District/College.
