Below are a few important documents and resources that we hope will help you manage your organization!

    Sample Financial Documents

    In order to access funds (SAF/EAF/UAF) for your organization, you must first complete a Student Organization Request Form, also known as a SORF.  Here is a sample of an accurately completed form:

    If your organization has recently completed a fundraiser, was given a donation, or has a deposit to make, please bring your funds to the SOuRCe with a completed Deposit Form.  The SOuRCe staff will re-check the deposit and will ensure the funds are safely delivered to the appropriate office on campus.  All deposits are placed into your organization's SAF account - these funds typically post to your budget within two business days.
