Student Association Funding Information
The Finance Board will make recommendations for funding programming based on the programming capital of organization requesting funds. The amount of funding an organization is eligible to receive will be determined according to the following tier system:
Tier 1: Organizations with little to no programming capital should not expect to receive funding for programs which cost more than $10,000.00.
Tier 2: Organizations that have put on a few successful programs but do not have extensive programming experience should not expect to receive funding for programs which cost more than $20,000.00.
Tier 3: Organizations that have put on several successful programs at the preceding levels are eligible to receive funding for events costing up to $40,000.00.
Tier 4: Organizations that have clearly proved themselves capable of programming by putting on multiple successful programs at each of the previous levels are eligible to request funding for events that exceed $40,000.00.
Organizations can build programming capital by consistently putting on successful events and by collaborating with and learning from larger, more experienced organizations. The success of events and programs for the purpose of this tier system shall be assessed on the basis of their attendance/ticket sales with respect to the expected attendance, in addition to general student body feedback regarding their satisfaction with the event/program. All decisions on an organization’s tier status and funding eligibility will be left to the discretion of the Finance Board.

Co-Curricular Grant Funding Information
The Co-curricular Fee was developed within the Division of Student Affairs to provide financial resources that promote and enhance the out-of-classroom experience for undergraduate students. In an effort to expand access to Co-curricular Fee funding, the Division of Student Affairs has established an application process for students and recognized student organizations to submit funding requests for consideration. These requests should be for extra-curricular programs, activities, travel, or events that are developed and promoted by students or recognized student organizations only (for departmental funding opportunities please refer to the ‘Co-curricular Fee Funding Application for Departmental Initiatives’). To ensure that the Co-curricular Fee distribution is effective and inclusive, an Advisory Committee of staff and students will be established to review funding requests for all student-generated initiatives submitted. The committee will evaluate applications and make allocation recommendations to the Senior Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs.
**NEW** For the 2015-2016 academic year, the co-curricular application will be only accepted by submitted the form via the link below. NO EXCEPTIONS
