Students can join ASB by either applying for the leadership class or running for class office. Everybody applying for ASB (whether they run for office or just want to join the class) will have to complete an application and turn it in before the deadline. Once completed applications have been turned in on time they will be screened and sorted for the interview process. Students will then move forward to an interview. Please note that any application that is missing a piece of the application will not be considered for the program and is automatically disqualified for consideration for the program.
