What Can Be Funded?

Funds in Services and Activities Fees accounts may only be used as provided by law, rule, or regulation of the Board of Trustees for the express purpose of funding student programs and activities of the College.

There are general guidelines that are followed when considering what the S&A funds may be used for. Expenses associated with traditional and time-honored activities such as student government, clubs, or activities of other official student organizations, student health and wellness programs, retreats, conferences, musical, dramatic, artistic, debate, and other presentations, events, and activities of an extra-curricular nature, student publications, and other mass media initiatives are considered permissible expenses.

For a more comprehensive list of permissible activities refer to the Killian Guidelines and the S&A Procedural Manual.

Yearly Process

The Service and Activities (S&A) Budget Committee makes the application available in the Fall quarter. The application deadline is early winter. The committee will have budget hearings during the winter quarter to decide by the begging of the Spring quarter. They will review and recommend S&A allocations which are ratified by the ASC and later sent to the President and Board of Trustees for approval. A summary of the expenditures can be found within the S&A Program Descriptions and Expenditures document.
