The ASC's primary function is to develop the student budget and to oversee student activities and programs, including concerts, dances, child care, clubs, athletics, recreation, field trips, etc. See ASC Budget below. The ASC's purpose, as stated in the ASC Constitution is as follows: "It shall be the purpose of the student body of Peninsula College to provide and maintain a unity and harmony among students, to establish a favorable relationship between the student body and the community, and to bring about an active student participation in college affairs."

Bus Pass and Student ID Cards
Peninsula College will not be issuing student ID cards until further notice. Students can obtain a bus pass by contacting Pirate Central at email@example.com. The bus pass is an annual contract voted on by students, providing an $8 pass to ride anywhere in Clallam or Jefferson counties each quarter. A monthly bus pass is $54 at CT and $36 at JT. Although many of our students never ride a bus, the vote passed on the grounds that it is for the greater good of all students, particularly those who need to ride the bus to get to the College, or to work, or to buy groceries, attend appointments, etc. In Clallam County, that amounts to a savings of $155 per quarter for students who ride the bus. Click here for details on who qualifies and how to pick up your pass. The other half of the transportation fee, the parking pass, also $8, provides annual maintenance for the parking lot.
Fitness Center Fee
Peninsula College students voted to assess themselves a fitness center fee in 2009 for the purpose of constructing the fitness center, which opened in 2010. That fee is a building fee and not a user fee, and thus will continue to be collected until the building is paid off.
Peninsula College students voted to assess themselves a graduation fee in 2019. The purpose of the fee is to provide graduation apparel to all students. The ASC adopted the fee to make the commencement ceremony more available to students with limited financial resources. The previous cost of the graduation package was $45-$60 per student.
The ASC provides funding and support for a variety of clubs and organizations and encourages students to form new clubs. See a current list of clubs on our club web page or on the Club bulletin board in the PUB. For more information on clubs, contact the ASC.
The ASC assists with funding for the college's Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC). Child care phone (360) 417-6532.
