ASO Board

Make a difference in student government!

We are LASC’s Associated Student Organization (ASO) Commissioners, a group of students who actively represent LASC’s diverse student body in voicing student concerns, requests, and needs during campus committee meetings and through our interactions with student-led organizations and groups.

ASO sponsors several social events and activities each year and supports our student ASO members. ASO Commissioners strive to keep students informed of their rights while creating an engaging and encouraging atmosphere for students to pursue their academic goals.

You can apply to be an ASO Commissioner! Those who are appointed as ASO Commissioners will gain experience in leadership roles, public speaking, budgeting, policy-making, and event planning. It’s a noteworthy position you can put on your resume, too.

Los Angeles Southwest College students voted to have each student pay one dollar ($1.00) per semester to raise funds towards ASO operations (Education Code section 76060.5). These funds are used to sponsor ASO events and support student-focused ASO campus activities.
ASO membership cards are seven dollars ($7.00) per semester and three dollars ($3.00) for summer and winter sessions. If you need to withdrawal from LASC, you will receive a refund.

ASO offers scholarships to its student ASO members! Each year we offer multiple scholarships for students who show a remarkable drive to pursue their own excellence in academics, integrity, and leadership.

Make a difference at LASC! ASO Commissioners develop important professional and life skills in leadership, finances, and decision-making. They help others, promote collaboration, and effect changes that benefit their fellow students. They gain resume-worthy experiences while taking on a leadership role representing their college community.

We have Commissioner positions that represent the different interests of our campus, such as Commissioner of Athletics, Cultural Affairs, Student Awareness, Disabled Student Services, Clubs and Organizations, and many others. Explore all of the positions you can apply for to see which one interests you the most. Then review the requirements, complete the application, and submit it to the ASO Office for review.
