The ASCC is conducting a Student Relations survey to ask for input from the study body regarding the allocation of the $1.6 million programs budget.
Participants could win college merchandise, according to the ASCC PR Director Matt Brown in the January events calendar.
The Associated Students of Clark College’s Services and Activities Fee Committee began hearing program proposals Jan.16, with hearings scheduled until Feb. 20.
Student programs are funded through the S&A Fee Committee, which determines the annual budgets of over 30 programs.
The committee is composed of six students, one faculty member, the ASCC Finance Director and the Director of Business Services who helps develop the annual budget for all ASCC services and activities. Non-voting advisors also sit on the committee. These eight people distributed a budget of over $1.6 million to programs this year, according to the S&A Fee committee handbook.
In addition to tuition, students are charged facilities, matriculation, technology and student union building fees. The fees total $7.45 per credit for the first ten credits and $2.40 for 11 to 18 credits, according to Sarah Gruhler, Director of Student Life. An additional 10 percent is included for student activity fees, according to the Clark College tuition and fees webpage. Tuition is based on residency and veteran status.
