Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) Fees

Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) are out-of-class experiences that enrich student life and learning. They are at least partially sponsored by an academic discipline or instructional department and their content is related to that discipline's curriculum. Activities that are considered essential to a quality educational program and an important instructional experience for enrolled students will be considered.

In Spring 2017, SF State took incremental steps to ensure that we are in compliance with CSU Executive Order 1102, which governs the approval, review, revisions and allocations of student fee funding. As a result, the IRA Advisory Board has now become a sub-committee of the Student Fee Advisory Committee (SFAC). Any recommended actions by this Board will be forwarded first to the SFAC for consideration and further endorsement before being advanced as a recommendation to the President for action.
