Full-time McMaster undergraduates are automatically members since they pay a refundable levy of $7.93 from their student fees. Anyone who is not full time at McMaster is welcome to join OPIRG as a “Community Member” for a sliding scale $10-$20 fee.
Members and Community members can access the resource library, attend workshops for free, vote at our Annual General Meeting, and are eligible to run for the OPIRG McMaster Board of Directors. Community members can also receive a mailed copy of our newsletter PIRGSPECTIVES.
Full Time McMaster undergraduates who do not wish to support OPIRG can receive a full refund by coming to the OPIRG office with their student card within three weeks after the “Drop and Add” period in September. OPIRG will mail a cheque for the full amount to your address.
