Segregated Fee Funding
Organizations interested in receiving segregated fee funding through Student Senate must submit a Petition of Intent to the Organizations Commission by the established deadline (first Friday of March). Once a petition of intent is submitted, Student Senate will verify that the organization is eligible to receive funding.
In order to be eligible for funding, organizations must meet the following two requirements:
1. Be an officially recognized student organization
2. Have an on campus account for a minimum of one year
If an organization has been deemed eligible to receive funding, a budget request packet will be sent to the organization at the beginning of the fall semester (September). The organization must complete the budget request forms and submit them by the established deadline. The organization must then present their budget to the Organizations Commission at a budget hearing in October.
For more information on segregated fee funding, please browse through the Organizations Funding Handbook.
Special Allocation Requests(Back to Top)
Organizations that have been deemed eligible to receive segregated fee funding may also request a special allocation from Student Senate.
Special allocations requests must meet three criteria:
1. The project must benefit the campus community
2. The project must be a one-time event (events will not be funded multiple times through special allocation)
3. The project must attempt to economize expenses
Organizations interested in requesting a special allocation must pick up a special allocation request from Colleen Bader (132 Davies) and submit the completed from to the Director of Finance. The Finance Committee will review the request and either approve or deny. Approved allocations will then go to Student Senate for a vote. Funding would become available immediately.
Funding Appeals(Back to Top)
If an organization is unhappy with a decision made regarding a funding request, they may appeal the decision to the Finance Commission. After appealing to the Finance Commission, if the organization is still unhappy with the outcome, the organization may appeal directly to Student Senate.
