The Associated Students of Pasadena City College’s Finance Committee is a group of dedicated student leaders who works cohesively to ensure the fair, maximized and most effective use and distribution of AS funds. The Finance Committee is in charge of implementing and monitoring of the AS budget. It formulates an itemized budget showing AS planned expenditures for the fiscal/academic year and approves it prior to its submission to the AS Executive Board. The Finance Committee also re-evaluates and revises such budget, evaluates funding requests and determines allocations for clubs, and evaluates scholarship applications in order to determine eligible recipients.
As a proactive and innovative group, the Finance Committee also organizes the ‘Financial Awareness Week’ event. During this week-long event, students have access to valuable information about the different economic aspects that influence student’s life and success, as well as enabling them to become financially savvy.

What’s the benefit on being part of the Finance Committee?
Having experience with budgets and financial decisions is a great skill for any student to have. It not only applies to virtually any job you are seeking, but it allows for students to experience what the business and financial environment resembles at a smaller scale. The finance committee will be a great experience not only in academia, as it will show how committed the student is beyond his/her class curriculum, but it will also provide members with skills that they can apply to their personal finances.
