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.”

2023-2024 IRA Application Process

The Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) application portal for project proposals with performance expectations between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024 is now closed


The application portal closed effective September 26, 2022.


If you are unfamiliar with IRA funding, the Instructionally Related Activities fee is category II fee paid by students. In accordance with ED Code 89230, the fee provides funding for educational experiences and activities directly related to courses offered at the university. Every year, the IRA Committee accepts funding proposals and submits a proposed budget to the Vice President Academic Affairs/Provost, Vice President Student Affairs, and the University President.


We encourage programs to consider applying for the next funding opportunity fall 2023.


Thank you for helping to engage our students with activities that enrich the student learning experience.
