As stated in the California Education Code, the primary reason for the establishment of the Associated Students is to provide a framework for administering student body funds.
The Associated Students of Orange Coast College have enjoyed a long history of fiscal responsibility. The ASOCC budget establishes specific controls and contingencies over all accounts. Certain responsibilities are delegated to the account advisor, who, as a member of the faculty or staff, is responsible to the ASOCC and OCC for accurately accounting for and overseeing all funds.
The 2013-2014 budget is $1,451,921. Needless to say, the ASOCC assumes a great deal of responsibility in overseeing the budget and it is incumbent that each student involved understand the process and realize the importance of ensuring that all monies are responsibly, thoughtfully and carefully allocated and spent.
