Student Representation Fee

 The Student Representation Fee is mandated by State Law (Assembly Bill 1504). The Student Representation Fee supports both the El Camino College Associated Students Organization (ASO) and Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) to advocate for California community college students. Both organizations provide students the opportunity to take an active role in higher education advocacy and policy development.

The Associated Students Organization (ASO), serves as your elected representative, and acts as your liaison to the College. ASO applies leadership knowledge and skills to stay informed and advocate for students.  ASO is committed to improving the quality of education and involvement of students at El Camino College.

The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) works to promote and safeguard access for current and future students to California public higher education in accordance with the Master Plan for Higher Education through system participatory governance, legislative and policy advocacy, and regional support and development.

ASO and SSCCC have lobbied to increase support for students’ basic needs such as health, food security, and increased financial aid. Legislative priorities have also included advocacy for more affordable California Community College education.  For example, El Camino College ASO and SSCCC advocated and contributed to the decision to offer services in the Student Health Center during the summer.

The $2 Student Representation Fee is an optional fee collected during the primary terms (fall and spring) for each enrolled student and established by CA Education Code: 76060.5.  $1 will go to the ASO government to fund advocacy efforts for student leaders and student representatives to state their positions and viewpoints on behalf of El Camino College students before city, county, district, state, and federal government, as well as other public agencies. $1 will be expended to establish and support the operations of a statewide community college student organization, recognized by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, with effective student representation and participation in state-level community college shared governance and with governmental affairs representatives to advocate before the Legislature and other state and local governmental entities

A student may decline the Student Representation Fee when enrolling for classes. If the student does not decline during enrollment, the Student Representation Fee will be assessed and collected. The Student Representation Fee is non-refundable after the second week of the semester.
