SJCC Students have the opportunity to participate in shared governance with faculty, classified staff, and administrators. The Associated Student Government (ASG) is the student component of the college’s governance. The ASG Administrative Council, led by the ASG President, is the governing body of the ASG and appoints students to serve on various campus and district committees. The ASG Administrative Council provides the student body with a direct voice and vote in determining the operation and direction of the college. Through participation in student government, students will acquire leadership skills, sense of accomplishment, and personal growth.
All enrolled students are members of the SJCC ASG. ASG stickers are given to students after the Student Activity Fee of $5 per semester is paid at the time of registration. A fee waiver may be requested. ASG stickers are used for discounts to various campus activities, merchandise at the Campus Store, and merchants in the community. ASG stickers are required of officers of all clubs and organizations and all students who receive emergency loans and scholarships through the Student Accounts Office. Funds from the Student Activity Fee are used to support campus events and various educational, academic, cultural, athletic, social, and recreational activities.
