Establishing ON-CAMPUS Banking for your Student Organization

One of the first things you should do once your club or organization has been recognized by Student Senate is to establish ON-CAMPUS BANKING.  Why?  So your organization will live past you!

To establish an organizational account, have your Org Advisor fill out this form:

Please submit the form to:

Denise Workman
Budget Analyst

The individual that needs to sign the FOAP request form is the organization’s advisor. The advisor would be the Custodian, Department Head and need to sign on the Authorized Account Signature line. If you need assistance filling out the form contact Denise Workman. Organization officials need to work with advisors to manage their account. 

Budgeting and Tracking Expenditures

Student organizations should become familiar basic budgeting and financial management. There are three primary purposes for developing a budget:
to put the group's plans into monetary terms
to provide a means of allocating limited resources among the organization's activities
to aid in tracking the organization's actual revenues and expenditures against its goals

Here is a basic, customizable budget template to use for your student organization.

If you need additional help setting up or tracking your student org budget, see your Advisor, or stop by Office of Student Involvement and ask for assistance.
