STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE INCREASE REFERENDUM!
The last fee increase was in 1999 which raised the fee from $10 to $11. Associated Students (A.S.) serves as stewards and representatives of the Mt. SAC student population. With the new 3 story Student Center being built which contains a Multicultural Center, extended hours of operation, separate club storage, student kitchen, Student Services offices, study and overall larger square footage leading, A.S. anticipates an increase in student engagement activities. Costs to provide equitable funding for students, clubs, organizations, and campus programs not funded by the College, have increased over the past 4 years. As it stands the current Student Activities Fee does not efficiently cover the current cost of A.S. requests and it is forecasted that with the rise in student programs and activities, the current Student Activities Fee of $11 will no longer be sufficient. A.S. believes that an increase to $15 will help provide a healthy budget to support over 60,000 students that attend Mt.SAC and provide adequate funding for all of the proposals and appropriations that A.S. receives.

The Student Representation Fee is a mandatory fee that is collected during fall and spring registration for the purpose of providing Mt. SAC students the means to state their positions and viewpoints before city, county, district, and state government agencies. A student may choose not to pay the Student Representation Fee for political, religious, financial, or moral reasons.
If a student chooses to opt-out of paying the fee for the stated reasons, then the student can visit the Cashier’s Office (formerly known as Bursar’s Office) in Building 4. Refunds for the Student Representation Fee will only be approved for the first two weeks of the semester. For more information or concerns regarding the Student Representation Fee, please contact the Student Life Office or Associated Students in Building 9C.
