The USG Business Office handles all fiscal matters of the student government and its member organizations. The office is staffed by permanent employees who work with the elected USG Treasurer to manage the funds collected through the mandatory student activity fee.

Applying for Funds
The USG Budget Committee considers budget requests from recognized student organizations only once a year. Any organization that has been officially recognized by USG for at least two full semesters is eligible to apply for a budget allocation. Unrecognized groups or those only recently recognized are not considered. Recognized organizations that don’t currently have a budget and are applying for funds in the budget process are limited to a $2,500 total budget request.

Application packets are distributed to the treasurers of eligible organizations at a treasurers meeting near the beginning of the spring semester. The allocations are made by the budget committee and approved by the USG Senate and the college. The budget takes effect on June 1, staying open until the following May 31.
