Budget Training Workshops *
The Budget Training Workshops will be conducted through ELMS. There will be modules to complete in compliance with line items that are being requested for by the student groups.
Treasurers and Presidents should have received an invitation to join the ELMS page in their UMD emails. Please check your email and ELMS course page for the Budget Training Modules.
The president, treasurer or the alternative executive board member are the only positions eligible to submit a budget on behalf of an organization. The individual submitting the budget application MUST be the one who attended the budget workshop.
*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.
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
