Associated Students General Information

Every OCC Student who has paid their College Service Charge belongs to the Associated Students of Orange Coast College (ASOCC), which is led by your student government and representatives. We are composed of the Student Senate, the Executive Board, Fiscal Affairs Council, Inter-Club Council, the Advocacy Committee, College Life Committee, Volunteer Team and the Orange and Blue Spirit Crew. The Student Senate appoints the head of each wing, with the exception of the Inter-Club Council and the Fiscal Affairs wing. All wings operate under the Student Senate’s jurisdiction.

ASOCC owns the Recycling Center. The monies from this enterprise, along with the College Service Charge, funds the ASOCC Program and many other OCC programs and services that are designed to support student success.

The guiding motto of ASOCC is "Students Helping Students". We believe that the wise use of our funds will enhance the experience that every student has while attending Orange Coast College. We support all OCC programs and activities and we hope you will too.
