Spring 2021 Student Fee Referenda Results

Click Here to access the full referenda proposals

In order for any fee referendum to pass, unless otherwise determined by the Chancellor prior to the election, a minimum of 20% of the eligible population (based on the campus’ official enrollment statistics as of the third week of classes) must vote in the election, and a simple majority (50%+1) of those voting must approve the proposed fee. The population eligible to vote is determined to be those students who belong to the segment of the population (e.g. undergraduate and/or graduate) that would be required to pay the fee.

The ASUCM (undergraduate) election met the 20% requirement.  As such, the proposals may move forward.
