Student Representation Fee (SRF)

Help Support Irvine Valley College Students and California Community College Students!


Background

In October 2019, Assembly Bill (AB) 1504 was signed into law, requiring California Community Colleges to collect a student representation fee (SRF) of $2 per semester. This law went into effect on January 1, 2020, and all students who initially register for classes on or after January 1, 2020 will have this fee imposed.


Purpose

The focus of this fee is to emphasize the role of community colleges in California as a postsecondary institution representing 2.1 million students, in addition to establishing an assurance of the students’ role in the shared governance process. This fee provides and enhances access to governance mechanisms for the purpose of effective representation, accountability, and also improving communication, coordination, and collaborative efforts to organize and advocate on issues affecting California Community College students.​ Please visit the Student Senate of the California Community Colleges to learn more about the importance of this fee for all California Community College Students.
