Student Organizations Budget Fact Sheet
One of the most important functions for a student organization is to obtain funding for programming. Below are some key facts you should know!
Funding Source: Student activity fees are the source for all student organization budgets. The funding is allocated through USG and GSA.
Registered Organizations: In order to access your organization’s funds you must register your club with the Office of Student Life. This must be completed every semester.
Budget Proposals: Budget requests are prepared and submitted during the spring semester for funds that will be used in the following academic year. Student organizations can receive a budget by emailing a proposal to their respective student government. Budget proposal forms can be found on MyBaruch.
Collaborative Effort: It is recommended that incoming organization presidents and treasurers prepare the annual budget for the following academic year. You can use the Office of Student Life as a resource.
Budget Approval: Organizations are notified of their approved budget amount for the following academic year at the end of the fiscal year in June. New student organizations go through a probationary period before they are approved; during this time, their student government can provide funding for their events.
Budget Access: Student organizations do not have access to their budget until the first day of the fall semester. In order to spend money the club president and treasurer must:
- Complete Registration on MyBaruch
- Complete BOLT training
- Have a signature card on file
