Student Representation and Student Body Fees

Student Representation Fee

The Student Representation Fee of $1 per student per semester was established by an election of the student body of Cañada College. Under applicable provisions of the California Education Code, the students established the fee by a two-thirds majority of the students who voted in the election. The money collected through the Student Representation Fee will be expended to provide support for students or their representatives who may be stating their positions and viewpoints before city, county and district government, as well as before offices and agencies of local, State, and Federal governments. A student has the right to refuse to pay the Student Representation Fee for religious, political, moral or financial reasons. The fee is not covered by the California College Promise Grant via financial aid and is not refundable unless an action of the College prevents the student from attending. A petition for a Student Representative Fee exemption may be obtained from the Cashier’s Office, or by calling (650) 306-3270.

Student Body Fee (optional)

The voluntary Student Body Fee is $15 per semester (Fall and Spring only) payable at the time of registration on WebSMART or at the Cashier’s Office. Students who pay the fee receive an Associated Student Body ID Card which entitles them to special discounts at local businesses, movie theaters, shops, restaurants, and on-campus athletic events. Funds collected also help support student activities, and scholarships. Students must contact the Center for Student Life and Leadership Development in Building 5, Room 354 within the first two weeks of the semester for removal of charge if they choose not to pay. See Schedule of Classes for deadline.
