  • Account must be activated any time after August 1st and will expire early June.
  • Student Org will not be able to apply for funding unless the account has been activated.
  • Access to rollover/income funds will not be available until the account has been activated.

REMINDERS

  • Advisors cannot request budget reports for any student organization nor attend any meetings in the ASUCR office.  
  • No duplicate or reprinted receipts will be accepted for reimbursements.
  • If you have several receipts that need to be reimbursed for one person, you do not need a requisition for each receipt.  You also do not have to itemize every item on the receipt on the requisition.  Example:  If you have a receipt from WalMart, Target and Domino's just list those on each line with a brief description and the total of the receipt.  On the explanation box, that is where you'll be more descriptive of what the items were for.  Please be as detailed as possible to avoid delays in your reimbursement. 
  • Any receipts over $100.00 that do not show method of payment (for the full amount) must have a copy of the bank statement along with the receipt.
  • Receipts will not be accepted after 30 days from the date of the receipt.
  • General meetings must be on campus otherwise it is considered an event.
