Wednesday September 13 12:00-1:00pm 
Monday September 18 3:00-4:00pm

SGA Budgeting Allocations Process for 2024-2025

  • There are three different deadlines depending on how much an organization is looking to request.

If your organization would like to request $10,000 or more, a budget request is due January 29th and to include:

  • A recorded presentation video will be required. (uploaded via this link separately, no longer than 5 minutes.
  • Supplemental written word document uploaded in the Ramconnect form.

If your organization would like to request between $1,000 and $9,999, a budget request is due February 23rd and to include:

  • Supplemental written word document uploaded in the Ramconnect form.

If your organization would like to request less than $1,000, a budget request is due April 7th which is also the FINAL DEADLINE and to include:

  • Supplemental written word document uploaded in the Ramconnect form.
  • No in-person presentations will be required. While only video presentations are needed for more than $10,000 requests, a written document is requested (to supplement the small boxes in the spreadsheet) for everyone so that the Finance Committee has all the necessary information to make an informed decision. If the finance committee has any questions or needs additional documentation to consider when reviewing your budget request, you will receive an invitation to zoom into a Finance Committee meeting. You will receive a request with two weeks’ notice to attend via zoom.

Auxiliary Requests

Per the SGA Financial Policies and Procedures, any student organization recognized by the Office of Student Leadership and Involvement is eligible to apply for auxiliary funding. The Auxiliary Request Form should be used for an organization's treasurer to submit an auxiliary request.

Please take note of the following to consider before applying for auxiliary funding:

  • Auxiliary funding should be an organization's last resort for funding
  • An organization is permitted one (1) auxiliary allocation per academic semester
  • Auxiliary funding is not guaranteed and will be allocated at the discretion of the SGA Finance Committee
  • All Auxiliary requests need to be submitted a minimum of two full weeks before funds are needed

Once an auxiliary request has been submitted it will be reviewed by the SGA treasurer. Approval of this form does not mean the auxiliary request has been granted, but rather that the SGA treasurer has received and reviewed the submission. Once this form has been reviewed, the SGA treasurer will contact the organization's treasurer if necessary to schedule a meeting with the SGA Finance Committee.

SGA Finance Committee meets on Thursdays during the Spring Semester.

*The last day to submit an auxillary request for the Spring 2024 semester is 3/29/24.
