November 11, 2016 will be the final day students may elect to opt out of the Student Involvement and Representation Fee (SIRF). SIRF has been in effect since fall 2015. Approved by the CSU Board of Trustees on January 28, 2015, the voluntary $2 fee is assessed twice per year in the fall and spring quarters. Revenue from the fee is intended to be used to ensure that students are able to fund the activities of the California State Student Association (CSSA) and thereby ensure the overall ability of students to participate in policy development and higher education initiatives at the system, state, and national levels.

CSSA is a non-profit student organization comprised of elected student leaders from all of the 23 CSU campuses with the sole purpose of representing CSU students to the California State University system and to the state and federal government, ensuring students are active participants in the decisions that shape their education.

Revenue from the fee will also provide additional funding support for the development of student policy recommendations, participation in system, state, and national governance, involvement in leadership development activities, and program support through student and professional staff administration.

Hear more about SIRF from ASI Student Government President, Jana Colombini here or visit the Cal Poly webpage for more details.
