    ASB activities are student-led and student-directed. Before you start this process, remember to PLAN AHEAD. Allow time for your club to meet, plan, and record your plan in meeting notes/minutes. We hope that the following forms and processes will help you in your planning.

    Submit all forms, minutes, and requests in hard copy to the ASB drop box located in the attendance office by Tuesday at STAR if you want the ASB to add it to their agenda for their weekly Wednesday meetings. Join us in the ASB room any day during STAR break or on Wednesdays for our ASB meetings.

    How do you spend ASB money?

    • Spend money that your student organization has already raised by completing an Activities & Athletics Financial Request Form and following this process.
    • Submit meeting notes/minutes with your request. These are cheat-sheets for secretaries and treasurers!
    • All reimbursements must be preapproved by your organization and the ASB. Reimbursements are limited to places that will not accept Purchase Orders.

    How do you raise ASB money?

    • Your events must be approved by the ASB and added to the calendar. Complete section A of the ASB Activities Approval Form.
