As an Orange Coast College student, you are also a member of the Associated Students of Orange Coast College (ASOCC). That means that you benefit from the 2022-2023 ASOCC budget. Most of the ASOCC budget pays for instructionally related programs, co-curricular activities, and vital college services. 

The ASOCC money comes from business done by the OCC Bookstore, Recycling Center and the College Services Charge, which every student is expected and encouraged to pay at registration. This money goes to support programs and services on campus to help them flourish and support students in a greater capacity. 

Every spring the student Fiscal Affairs Council reviews budget requests to establish priorities for financing services to Orange Coast College. The budget is given to the Vice President of Student Services for initial review. Then it is forwarded in May to the SGOCC Student Senate and the District Board of Trustees for final approval.
