Is the ASA fee fully refundable?

Posted in Campus, Politics by Evan Lisull on 13 August 2009

That’s what we were told when the ASA fee increase from $1 to $2/per semester was approved – and according to ASA’s bylaws,

Every Student shall have the right to a refund of any Assessment paid by such student. Such request shall be made in writing and delivered to the Executive Director within twenty-one days of the start of instruction each semester. Such refund shall be paid with all reasonable diligence. (Art. II, Sec. 12)

When one downloads the fee refund form [PDF], however, it appears that only half of the money is capable of being returned:

The fee increase was only approved in March 2008, so it’s probably a bit premature to be expecting changes by now. At the same time, it was be nice if this could get updated by the start of the school year, seeing how students have three weeks to get the form to ASA’s main office in Phoenix.

    A few things the logo on the form is the OLD logo so I’m guessing that might have something to do with it and as far as I know the office moved recently so you might look into speaking with the new ASA directors about your questions. The ASA website is horrible and rarely updated.
