Funding for Recognized Student Organizations

Recognized Student Organizations are eligible to apply for funding through the Student Activity Finance Board (SAFB), a function of Student Council. Serving as guardian for both the student body and funded student organizations, SAFB provides financial guidance and assistance and ensures student funds are used for their intended purpose. SAFB provides funding recommendations and information to the Student Council membership free of bias or discrimination. Student Life monitors financial activities and provides training and advisement to the student organizations and SAFB. 

Student organizations receiving financial support from student activity fees are required to prepare a budget of its income and expenditures each academic year.  Budget recommendations will be made by the SAFB to the Student Council for approval and recommendation to the campus administration.  Student organization accounts are subject to audit. Everyone applying for SAFB funding must be in accord with the SAFB CODE
