Elected student leaders oversee involvement and representation dollars through the California State Student Association (CSSA).

In addition to supporting student representation, this contribution increases opportunities for students to acquire relevant career skills, apply for scholarships, participate in internships, and advocate on issues that are important to students.
Each CSU student will have the ability to elect not to pay the fee for financial, political, or personal considerations each time it is assessed. To opt out, go to the Account Inquiry link from the Student Center page, under the Finances Section. From the Activity page you will see a list of all fees, and this $2 fee will have an opt out feature. You will have the ability to opt out each semester through census date – one month into the term. If you do not opt out, and the fee remains unpaid as of census date, then the fee will be waived.
