At the beginning of the Fall semester, Student Affairs Representatives allot funds to University recognized student groups. Throughout the year, student organizations can spend money within their budget for their organizations events. Students are to turn in receipts and be reimbursed. Invoices are another option in which students can order items for an event and have the provider paid directly. With this method, students do not have to pay for the service at the time of delivery.
