Use of Student Activity Fees (SAF)

Queensborough Community College has been very busy preparing our students to be successful, since COVID-19 struck in the spring semester. We recalibrated and retooled, and all of our divisions did what was necessary to serve students in a remote environment. The college and specifically the Department of Student Affairs is committed to the continuous support of our students going forward.

Over the years, our (SAF) Student Activity Fee monies have been used to support student life on campus including the Student Government Association (SGA) and Student Clubs and Organizations. This fall, these important services will continue to be provided virtually to all students. Whether you join an honor society such as Phi Theta Kappa, or a special interest club like the Foreign Language Club or the Motor club, be sure to take advantage of the rich experiences offered by being active outside of the classroom. This year will again include college wide events that feature celebrations of culture through the SGA Heritage Month celebrations, social events such as parties and workshops. Student integration is an important facet when looking at student success outcomes. Students that are active in student life are more likely to graduate. Our SGA is hosting a myriad of town halls and information sessions aimed at integrating and connecting students to others on campus. This kind of engagement is important for student success. The Virtual Club Fair is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16th at 12:30 -2pm. Look for an invitation in your email.

Other areas that receive funding from the SAF include athletics, sports teams and recreation activities, the Aurora Yearbook, the Communique Newspaper and the Cultural Council, which supports events that feature dance, theatre, art, and music. Most importantly, the SAF provides substantial support to campus tutoring services. Queensborough relies on the Student Activity Fee to provide support to all of our students' tutorial needs. Free tutoring for each class offered at the college is a student service that is not always offered and this sets QCC apart from other community colleges.

Lastly, each year our campus celebrates our graduates with a really wonderfully done ceremony. Due to COVID, we hosted the campuses first ever Online Commencement Ceremony. We graduated over 2,400 students and provided an opportunity for each of these wonderful students to be recognized. The event was recorded so our students could cherish these memories for the rest of their lives. The Student Activity Fee played an integral role in the college's ability to host commencement. We would not be able to have a proper ceremony and recognize our students' fantastic accomplishments without this funding. All of these events, activities and opportunities are only possible through the Student Activity Fee.
