RSO Funding

Student Government Funding:

Registered Student Organizations seeking funding for  any items, services  or special event can request funding from Student Government (SG).

 

 Student Government Funding is not mandatory for any Registered Student Organization, but  if an RSO would like to receive funding they must comply with the SG Title VIII: Finance Code and Provisionary Language, and Title XI: The Executive Agency Statute found on the Student Government Website.  

 

Apply for Student Government Funding

Step 1: Request 

 

RSOs must be funding eligble: 

The RSO's president and treasurer must pass the Student Government funding quiz listed on Canvas with an 80% or higher.  

Funding Eligible RSOs can then apply for grants from the Club Funding Board or apply for Travel and Special Requests through the Budget & Allocations Committee.  

 

 

Take this Funding Survey to see which request: Grant, Special, or Travel to submit.      

 If your request is approved, your organization will receive an allocation of money.   

 

Step 2 : Expend Funds:

Submit a Purchase Request to the Business & Accounting Office. 

 

Take this Purchase Request Diagnostic survey to  determine if the Business & Accounting Office will have  to reimburse you, or pay a vendor. 


Receipts for reimbursement must be turned in with the Purchase Request no more than 10 business days after the purchase.

RSO Fundraising

 

RSO's can also fundraise to gain funding for their organization. This can be in the form of accepting donations, asking for sponsorships, partnering with local businesses or selling items. Recognition by the University does not imply tax-exempt status and under no circumstances may the University’s tax exempt status and/or tax exempt number be used by an RSO.
