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 2019-20 Board will be setting the budget for the following 2020-21 school year)
