Funding and Membership

OPIRG’s core funding comes from full-time undergraduate students, in the form of a $7.93 refundable levy. All full-time undergraduate students are automatically members. If you do not wish to support OPIRG McMaster, you can claim a full refund by bringing your student card to the OPIRG office. This must be done within three weeks after the completion of the drop and add period, when your student status has been finalized.

Anyone who is not full time at McMaster is welcome to join OPIRG as a Community Member for a sliding scale $10-20 fee.  

All members can access the resource library, attend workshops for free, vote at our Annual General Meeting, and are eligible to run for the OPIRG McMaster Board of Directors.
