Membership Opt-Out Policy So, the Education Act 1989 (specifically Section 229A) makes Membership of the UCSA 'compulsory'. That said, it's not really true compulsion because you're able to 'opt-out'. So Membership is automatic unless you choose to not be a member, a bit like KiwiSaver. You can do this prior to enrolment at UC or at any stage during your time here. It's your choice. The Act says you can opt-out for two reasons, conscientious objection and financial hardship. As we don't charge any fee, the first of those reasons is really the only one for you to consider.
The UCSA Constitution, that guiding document we all read before going to sleep... also enshrines your rights here by allowing you to 'resign your membership'. Read the Membership 'Opt-Out' Policy for more information.
