How does the ASO Discount Benefit Pass work?
Students can buy into the ASO Discount Pass online when they enroll during the primary
terms (fall and spring). It will automatically be added to your fees if you do not
opt-out. The ECC Cashier's Office then enters your purchase into your account. Once
the information has been entered you can start using it immediately. Make sure your
ECC email address is correct so that you receive your discount information.
When the Cashier Windows are allowed to reopen, Staff, faculty, alumni may also purchase the $15 discount pass at the Cashier's Office located outside on the southeast corner of the Bookstore.
