The Services and Activities Fee Committee proposes and the Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees approves programs and corresponding budget levels for College organizations funded by Services and Activities (S&A) Fees. These fees are collected from students at registration and are allocated to clubs and programs. As a student officer, student organization advisor, program director, or budget authority, you are responsible for spending the money in an acceptable and appropriate manner, following State of Washington and Shoreline Community College guidelines.
The principal purpose of the committee is to act as a fiduciary over the expense and revenue of the student Services and Activities Fee (S&A). Stewardship includes ensuring lawful agreements and other contractual obligations such as the By-Laws of the Associated Student Government (ASG), Killian Outline and the Revised Codes of Washington (RCW) have been pledged and are properly enforced. The S&A fee is paid by students for the express intent of funding bona fide student-run services, clubs and programs that enhances the overall college experience. Money generated from the Services and Activities fee is based off of the number of credits registered as well as enrollment status.
- Establish guidelines that stipulate policies and procedures for budgeting and expending fee revenue
- Conduct an annual budget allocation process beginning fall quarter. This includes evaluating program priorities and budget levels; then, submitting allocation recommendations for the expenditure of funds derived from SS&A fees with supporting documents presented to the Board of Trustees for final review.
- Determine a recommended level for the base-line budget of Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs)
- Ensure that boardroom decisions incorporate the principles of the Triple Bottom Line: social equity, economic viability and ecological integrity
- Maintain complete and accurate records of expenses, revenue and current balances for the SS&A fee and contingency account
- Promote transparency by publishing financial and budgetary documents on the ASG website and other mediums where students have easy access to view how their money is being spent and managed
- Engage in continuous training so that all members are up to par with current agenda and procedures
- Develop an end of the year audit to identify areas of improvement, implement proper changes and mitigate discrepancies
