Every UVic student is a member of VIPIRG and pays a membership due through their student fees. Undergrads pay $3 per full time semester or $1.50 per part time semester. Grad students pay $2 per semester.
This fee is refundable by cheque to students during a refund period each semester. Students who receive a refund lose access to the VIPIRG library and programming, and are no longer eligible to vote in VIPIRG elections or stand for election to the VIPIRG Coordinating Collective.
The refund application form can be found here
Everyone is welcome to become a member of VIPIRG. The annual membership fee is $10 and can be paid through cheque, by mail, in person, or via Paypal.
