Frequently Used Forms

Student Organization Travel Request

All University travel by a student organization must be approved in advance of the trip and before making any financial commitments.
Prior travel approval insures the following:

  • the traveler's advisor and/or department approves of the activity,
  • funds are available for reimbursement of expenses when applicable,
  • travel is allowable with the funding source,
  • staff/faculty traveling with organization is covered under workman's compensation insurance when applicable
  • approved actions while on official travel are actions by a University representative; without approval the same actions could be considered as those by a private individual for which the traveler could be personally liable, and 
  • the safety and interest of students are addressed. 

This form is to be filled out every time your organization travels, including all local travel. Based upon the responses, you will be directed to any additional forms that need to be completed. You will be able to register up to four local trips that also does not include university funding.

Approved forms will be sent via email to the student who submitted it. Student Development Programs asks that the form be filled out at least 2 weeks prior to the event being held. Below is the definition of fundraising, sales, and solicitation:

Request for Student Organization On Campus Financial Account (aka Agency Fund)

Agency funds are defined as funds held by the University on behalf of an affiliated organization. These funds work largely like checking accounts and are available to registered student organizations.  You must be registered with the University through Student Development Programs and have a faculty/staff advisor willing to serve as your financial manager prior to requesting an Agency Fund.
