Finance and Business Committee 2020-2021

Welcome! AS Finance and Business is an Administrative Committee under the Office of the Internal Vice President. ASFB serves the UC Santa Barbara student body by facilitating the financial allocation of student fees. By streamlining the budgetary process to outreaching to student organizations, the committee seeks to make funds easier to access. We make it possible to host programs, events, and other student expenditures and we are constantly looking for ways to improve and grow. If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas about funding or about our committee, please visit our office hours or email financeboard@as.ucsb.edu.

Each quarter, every UCSB undergraduate pays a fee of around $210 to the Associated Students. This fee supports a wide variety of operations of Associated Students that benefit the students of UCSB, the campus, and the surrounding community. The charge of the AS Finance and Business Committee is to help registered student organizations put on successful events, provide necessary student services, hold conferences, and fund championship aspiring teams through the procurement of funds. The AS Finance and Business Committee is composed of one Chair, one Vice-Chair, the Chief Financial Officer, Finance Officers, and Senators. The student leaders who sit on the Finance and Business Committee are tasked with the careful deliberation and the decision of the approval of funding for student groups.
