Graduate Student Government

A new feature has been added to all organizations OrgSync account. This new feature – known as Budget Management System (BMS) – is an investment made to improve the submission process for organizations wishing to receive funding from Undergraduate/Graduate Student Government.

If you are interested in learning about the new way to submit budget requests, please check the BMS training below. A new electronic process is in place, and specific budget periods have been determined to allow for submissions only occurring during certain times of the semester. This will help ensure a consistent monitoring of requests and allocations.

If your organization will be requesting funds for a program, event, or travel, make sure you review the file below to see the budget request periods.
