Funding for student organizations comes from the student activities fees that every registered undergraduate contributes each year. In order to request funding from Student Senate, Student Senate must recognize the organization either as a Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 organization. Non-funded organizations are ineligible to receive funding.

Campuswide Organizations

All campuswide organizations recognized by Student Senate are required to submit a budget proposal in the spring for the upcoming academic year with a line-by-line description of the upcoming year’s spending. This budget is reviewed by the Finance Committee of Student Senate and then voted on by the Senate body. This budget should include all financial aspects of operation for the upcoming academic year. Organizations are required to use the budget template, which is available on the forms page. Campuswide organizations do not have a predetermined limit on the amount they may request in their budget.
