Starting in the Fall 2015 term there will be a new $2 student fee, Student Involvement and Representation Fee, assessed to each student on a voluntary basis - allowing you the choice to opt-out.

In addition to supporting student representation, your contribution increases opportunities for students to acquire relevant career skills, apply for scholarships, participate in internship, and advocate on issues that are important to you.

Instructions for Opting Out:

If you chose not to support the SIRF fee,  you may opt-out each semester prior to the census date. Fall Term - September 21st.
