Referendum

Bruin Emergency Relief Fund Language

Shall the Undergraduate Students Association ensure the student-run support of those in crises

by increasing student fees by $2.00 per undergraduate student per quarter in order to establish

a USAC Emergency Fund that shall be allocated to undergraduate students facing emergencies

that require financial assistance?

 

This new fee would be collected from all undergraduate students enrolled in Fall, Winter, and

Spring, beginning in Fall 2021.

 

This fee will be adjusted annually by the Los Angeles County Consumer Price Index in order to

address changes due to inflation and rising costs of living, beginning in Fall 2022.

25% of the amount collected will be returned to undergraduate financial aid.
