Associated Student Organization

Students standing with president  

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-lead organizations and groups.

Please note: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all academic counseling at LASC will use Cranium Cafe, a meeting and collaboration platform designed specifically for student support.

Once on the ConexED page, students and faculty should use the "Login with Canvas" button. Staff should use the "Guest Registration" button

  • Students can access Cranium Cafe by clicking the online counseling button on each department's web page or the counseling and live chat button on the homepage of the student portal.  Students need to create an account, sign in, and can then begin chatting with counselors.
  • Counselors will be available on Cranium Cafe during their typical hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday and from 8 a.m. to 1 pm. Fridays. Students will be able to meet with a counselor from any special programs they belong to or a general counselor of their choice. Students are strongly recommended to meet with counselors from their special programs.
  • Although counselors will be able to perform most functions remotely, there may be slight delays in completing some tasks such as document requests from other colleges. Please be patient. LASC Counselors are here to answer your questions and help you plan for academic success this Spring Semester and beyond.

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.

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.

Membership in ASO has its benefits! As a member, you will:

  • Receive discounts to ASO-sponsored activities, such as [please advise items that happen regularly, such as a Welcome Week, athletics-focused events, etc.]
  • Be considered for any ASO-funded awards and scholarships, as stipulated in the ASO Bylaws
  • Have voting rights in any ASO election, initiative, or referendum
  • If eligible, be able to hold any ASO elected office, be appointed to an office, and serve on any committee
  • Receive any additional benefits throughout the year that are set by the Student Council

 

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.

Challenge yourself, expand your boundaries, and be a part of making LASC the best it can be!
