Where does AUSG get its money?


All student organizations at AU, including AUSG, receive funding from the student activity fee, which is paid by all undergraduate students. Full-time students pay a fee of $88.50 per semester, and part-time students pay $15 per semester. The money raised by the student activity fee is split into three sections. Approximately half goes to AUSG, and a quarter each to AU Club Council and the Student Media Board. The specific division of activity fee revenue is decided every spring by the Budget Advisory Committee, which is a group of nine students representing different student organizations. With questions about AUSG finances, you can email comptroller@ausg.org.
