Each year, students enrolled full-time at HSU pay $117 towards the Student Body Association, known as Associated Students. These fee monies become the major sum of the Associated Students annual budget. As the student government, the Associated Student Board of Directors allocates the fee revenue to support programs and services that would not occur without the collective power of Associated Students support.

Each Spring, student-oriented programs, services, organizations and departments from on-campus apply to be part of the following school year's A.S. Budget. (For example, the 2018-19 Board will be setting the budget for the following 2019-20 school year)

The application period for 2019-20 AS Budget Request was December 21, 2018- February 6, 2019

Applications can be viewed here or in the A.S. Office's Budget Application Binder.

The Process
  1. Budget Adminstrator Meeting

  3. A.S. Board of Finance Meeting
    Monday, February 18, 3-5pm

    Nelson Hall East 120
    The A.S. Board of Finance will discuss A.S. Budget Requests and determine which A.S. Programs to invite to the budget hearing. A.S. Programs will be asked to participate in a hearing if the A.S. Board of Finance has specific questions about the program’s budget request. The schedule for the Budget Hearing will be released by Wednesday, February 20.

    ​The A.S. Board of Finance met on the above date and discussed their reviews of the budget requests for 2019-20. The members would like to ask some more specific questions of the following groups:

    • Drop-In Recreation (Pool)
    • Humboldt International Film Festival [HIFF]
    • Sport Club
    • Student Access Gallery [SAG]
    • Waste Reduction & Resource Awareness Program [WRRAP]
    • Womxn's Resource Center [WRC]
    • MultiCultural Center/Asian-Desi-Pacific Islander Center/ Scholars Without Borders [MCC/ADPIC/SWB]
      • ​These groups are being asked to come in together to allow for the discussion of how/where A.S. funding should be represented for SWB and ADPIC. They are splitting off as individual A.S. Programs when, historically, positions and programming line items for these groups were part of the MCC's budget. Due to this history, there is some duplication in these applications. The Board of Finance would like consultation on what's most practical for all parties.
