ASB Fund Balance Reports

Associated Student Body (ASB) funds are public monies raised on behalf of students, and are used for optional, extra-curricular events of a cultural, athletic, recreational, or social nature.  In general, carryover amounts from one year to another are due to anticipated expenditures for student activities which take more than a year of fundraising.  These funds are not available for curricular, or graded student activities.

This financial report reflects the detailed ASB account balances by school. Beginning balances are as of September 1 and ending balances are as of August 31 for each year.  The current year report is unaudited, and may not reflect final ending balances for the year.
