Instructionally Related Activities

Instructionally Related Activities (IRA)

“Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) are defined as “activities and experiences that are partially sponsored by an academic discipline or department and which are integrally related to the function of instructional offerings.”


The IRA Fund was established to provide support of essential educational experiences and activities that aid and supplement the fundamental educational mission of Cal State Fullerton.


An instructionally related activity should provide for the performance, competition, or laboratory experience outside of, but related to, the formal instructional offerings at Cal State Fullerton. The IRA fee is one of the several mandatory CSU student fees.”

2022-2023 IRA Application Process

It is time to kick off the 2022-23 Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) budget process.


If you are unfamiliar with the IRA budget, the Instructionally Related Activities fee provides funding for educational experiences and activities directly related to courses offered at CSU, Fullerton. Every year, the IRA Committee accepts funding proposals and submits a proposed budget to the University President.


To apply for 2022-23 funds, you will be required to complete a virtual orientation.


Please note that this orientation is MANDATORY for any program that would like to apply for funding. After the training orientation, attendees will receive a link to the online application form and specific instructions on how to apply. If you would like more information, you can visit the IRA website.

The IRA Funding Orientation will open on September 30, 2021. Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 18, 2021.


If you plan to request 2022-23 IRA funds, please email to request a link to the virtual orientation session. Completion of this orientation is required for you to be able to submit an application for funding.


If you have any questions or concerns, please send a detailed email to the address above. We would be happy to assist you to the best of our abilities.
