Access to Allocated Funds If your student organization receives funding from SGA, those funds are transferred to a university (KFS) account and managed by the Student Organization Resource Center (SORC) Financial Services Staff. It is SORC’s responsibility to ensure that groups are spending their funds in accordance with SGA policies and procedures while also adhering to university policies.
Below is the SORC Financial Services Manual which provides detailed information on how to view your fund balance, keep track of all activity on your account as well as how to submit payment requests.
While SORC Financial Services staff work closely with the SGA, their role is to assist groups AFTER the funding process. If you have questions on how to apply for funds or what types of funding your group is eligible for, please refer those questions to the SGA Finance Committee. Questions regarding how to access those funds should be directed to SORC.
SORC Financial Services staff are committed to assisting groups in understanding these policies and procedures. We encourage you to reach out to them by visiting their office Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. They are located in the Student Involvement Suite on the ground floor of the Stamp Student Union. They can be contacted at 301-314-7158 or SORC@umd.edu.
