Three Student Council officers, at the Hawaii Community College in Hilo, have been removed from office - two successive treasurers and the Student Government President - for requesting receipts and financial records of student fee receipts and expenditures .

They have requested a full audit of the student fee accounts from the administration and the Board of Regents, so far without success.

Also the college is charging the following per-semester student fees
  • News Publication $19
  • Recreation $7
  • Campus Center $5
These are all non-existent facilities or services.

There are great irregularities with the financial records of the student fees. Previous and present council have been asking for more than three years, for financial information and it has not been forthcoming.
