A variety of funding opportunities are available for registered student organizations, individual students, and groups of students interested in hosting events on and off-campus.
All recognized student organizations will have a 12 digit account number from accounting to use for payment for resources, events, etc. Keeping timely and accurate records help you to plan better throughout the year and, most importantly, will help you from going over budget.
The following are various methods used for purchasing items and or paying for services provided your organization from your budget approved by the Business and Finance Committee:
The BFC is responsible for allocating the student activity fee money to student organizations recognized by the Student Council and Campus Senate. The committee allocates the majority of funds to approved groups at the end of each semester. The BFC also has supplemental budget meetings every other week if your group needs additional funds. Emails will be sent with the exact time and location of supplemental hearings. The BFC Bylaws can be found online within the Student Council Bylaws. If you would have any questions for the BFC Treasurer, please visit the Office of Student Engagement during BFC office hours or send the Treasurer an email.
To be eligible for Fun Funds, an application must be submitted at least seven (7) days in advance of the proposed activity. The activity must be open to all students and be alcohol-free. Students have also used Fun Funds to sponsor bands, cultural dinners, and theme parties on campus.
