The Graduate Student Association (GSA), which represents academic graduate students and professional students, is holding a referendum to increase the GSA fee by $5.40 per quarter. If the referendum is approved, the GSA fee would rise from $12.00 per quarter to $17.40 per quarter beginning in the 2017-2018 academic school year. The GSA Fee has not been changed since 2002.
