The purpose of the
Student Activities Program is to provide students with an environment in
which to enhance identification, affiliation, friendship, and
responsibility; to assist with the delivery of services which will
facilitate the completion of educational goals; and to provide students with
an organization through which they may have self-governance and participate
in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The Associated Students of Porterville
College (ASCC) is the official student organization, with membership open to
all students. The ASCC, through its governing body, promotes the Student
Activities Program at the college. A system of self-government has been
established by which the students, through democratic action, formulate and
execute policies and programs and prepare the student body financial budget.
Porterville College Community
College students are expected to become members of the ASCC through purchase
of a student identification card and validation sticker each semester at the
time of registration. These funds, in turn, support the Student Activities
Program that benefits the college and contributes to the welfare of all
students. The Student Activities Program is also supported by funds in the
District Co-Curricular Student Development Budget.
Active membership in the Associated Students
qualifies an individual to hold office, to join student organizations, to be
eligible for student loans, to participate in the athletic programs and to
receive student discounts in the community, college bookstore and snack bar,
and reduced or free admission to various on-campus and off-campus events.
