What is a fee levy group?
“Fee levy groups are student organizations and initiatives at Concordia University that are student-elected through the referendum process. Fee levy groups are made up of Concordia undergraduate (and sometimes graduate students) as well as community members from wider Montreal communities. Fee levy groups receive all or part of their operating budgets from a per-credit Concordia student fee levy. Fee levy groups are autonomous from the administrations of Concordia University, the CSU, the GSA, and all academic bodies and associations.”- http://concordiacommunity.org/about/
Fee Levy Application Process
Any non-CSU group seeking a new fee levy must have been functioning for at least a full year before the submission of its application to the Policy Committee for review.
The fee levy applicants must come and present their proposed question to the Council of Representatives prior to circulating their petition on campus. The presentation allows for discussion amongst Council and for the applicants to solicit feedback on the proposed referendum question. You must contact the Council Chair to be added to the Council Agenda at email@example.com.
Application must contain*:
(a) The group’s constitution and regulations
(b) A list of at least 3 officers responsible for the organization
