Auxiliary Enterprises

The College believes the operation of auxiliary enterprises to be helpful in meeting the educational mission of the College. An auxiliary enterprise is an activity where the costs of providing goods and services to the general public or to the internal college community are recovered through user charges. All such activities shall conform to the provisions of the commercial activities statute RCW 28B.63, and will operate as proprietary funds under the guidelines set forth by the Office of Financial Management.
