Descriptions of Fees
Student activity fees are used by Student Affairs or registered student organizations to provide recreational, entertainment, educational, or culturally enriching programs or services which do not solely support academic programs. This includes student and professional staff members in the Office of Student Involvement. Programs, services, and staff positions must directly benefit or serve the GGC student body, and events and services must be free and open to all GGC students. This does not include ordinary or operational expenses of denominational or sectarian religious activities, partisan political activities, social fraternities and sororities, nor charitable causes or contributions. Student activity fees cannot be used for the direct benefit of faculty, staff or community members, or for fundraisers, benefits or registered student organization members-only field trips or events.
