Our Fee-Levy Groups

What is a Fee Levy Group?

A fee levy group is defined as  following:

“[…] 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.” – from http://concordiacommunity.org/about/
