How does the ASO Discount Program work?
Students can buy into the ASO Discount Program 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 program at the Cashier's Office located on the southeast corner of the Bookstore.
The Discount that you purchase for Spring also covers the entire summer sessions and expires the day before the Fall semester term begins. Likewise, the Fall discount program is active throughout the winter session and expires the day before the spring term begins.
