On January 28, 2015 the California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees established a new $2 optional fee, the Student Involvement and Representation Fee, which goes into effect in the Fall 2015. This fee is charged to all students unless they choose to opt out of the fee, which can be done via your student portal. The fee is assessed twice a year in the fall and spring semesters. This is used to support the student leadership, involvement, governance, and advocacy programs managed by the California State Student Association (CSSA).
Purpose of CSSA?
CSSA is an independent, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization comprised of elected student leaders from all of the 23 CSU campuses with the sole purpose of representing CSU students to the 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 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. Because CSSA is an independent, not-for-profit organization governed by Associated Students leaders, the use of this fee will always be determined by students.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).
