Recognized Student Organizations can receive funding through two different types of funding sources. Student Fee funded sources and Non-Student Fee funded sources. This distinction is important, as Student Fee funded sources are subject to Student Fee Regulations.
Cultural Events Board: CEB has allocated mandatory student fee money each year to fund projects that provide the campus with a diverse program of special events.
Council of Colleges and Schools:
CCS receives mandatory student fees from CUSG Legislative Council's budget to make allocations to student organization projects that are oriented toward student interests and concerns.
CUSG Representative Council: The Representative Council receives a portion of the CUSG Legislative Council's budget to make allocations to student organization projects that are oriented toward student interests and concerns.
Student Organization Allocations Committee: SOAC allocates money to Affiliated and Independent student organizations for their operating, and programming expenses.
Local Schools: Each of the CU college and school student governments is allocated student fee money based on the actual number of students enrolled in the respective school. Many of the schools in turn will fund student organizations and/or special projects affiliated with their particular school.
Some administrative and academic departments or committees will allocate funds to student organizations for special projects, events or student organization travel. These funds and any student fee allocations you receive must be spent through The Center for Student Involvement.
