Funding Account Information

Student Government Funding Update January 2018

The Student Government Association oversees two main funding accounts that are generated by a percentage of student tuition dollars that make up the Student Government Association operating budget. These accounts exist to benefit the student body and are available for undergraduate students and organizations to receive partial funding for endeavors. This money is often contracted to students upon submission of a funding application to the executive board and or funding board and can be applied to projects, initiatives, activities, programs, conferences, competitions, events, and showcases to name a few.

Discretionary Account.
The Discretionary Account holds an estimated $34,000. The funds within the Discretionary Account are overseen by the Student Government Association Executive Board and are used to fund special campus projects deemed appropriate and or necessary. There are no funding guidelines that govern the justification for spending in this account other than the discretion of the Executive Board. Should a funding request come through the Discretionary Account and receive approval for funding by the Student Government Executive Board, the request then goes to Senate for final say.

Student Organizations Account 
The Student Organizations Account holds an estimated $30,000. The funds within the Student Organizations Account are overseen by the Student Government Association Funding Board and the Student Government Association Accountant to fund registered student organizations recognized by the Student Government Association. Organizations requesting funding from this account will have had to attend a funding informational session with the Student Government Association Treasurer prior to submission of request, as well as adhere to a set of funding guidelines to be considered for funding. Should a funding request come through the Student Organizations Account and receive approval for funding by the Student Government Association Funding Board, the request then goes to Senate for final say.
