Budget Training Workshops *
In lieu of an in person budget workshop, there is instead one posted on the SGA Youtube. By watching the video and scoring a 100% on the ensuing quiz in the video description, you will then be considered a Finance Certified Officer and are able to submit budget requests to the SGA (other requirements withstanding). The link to the video is below.
Only student groups that are recognized by the SGA are eligible for funds. If you have questions about SGA-Recognition, contact the Director of Student Groups, Alisha Desai.

*In order to be granted funding, the officer who submits a budget for an SGA recognized student group MUST attend a finance training once per school year, BEFORE they submit their budget request. Officers may be finance trained before their group is SGA recognized, but the group must SGA recognized before they receive any funding.
**Doors will open 15-20 minutes before the training begins; anyone arriving 10 minutes after the start time will not be marked as present. You must stay for the entire session in order to satisfy this requirement.
