Annual Budget Appropriations

posted Sep 10, 2014, 11:56 AM by Kayla Hummell   [ updated Sep 23, 2014, 6:33 PM ]

Here is how it all works:

Student Senate is committed to helping all of the organizations in the ONU community achieve their goals.  To that end, Student Senate awards funds to organizations through the budget appropriations process.  In order to be eligible for the normal budget appropriations process, a representative of the organization must be present at one of two information meetings. The organization must then fill out an application by the due date.  Once all applications are received, the Finance Committee of Student Senate will meet to determine how much money to allocate to each organization. Upon being informed of the amount your organization is awarded by the Finance Committee, you will have the option to either accept or appeal the amount.  If you accept the amount, the funds will be deposited into your organization's account with the Controller within one week of approval by the General Assembly of Student Senate.  If you appeal, your organization must appear in front of General Assembly and state why you feel the Finance Committee's award is inadequate.


Special appropriations are available to new organizations or to organizations that have unexpected opportunities arise during the course of the year.


For questions about budget appropriations, please contact Secretary of Finance, A.J. Mehlow at a-mehlow@onu.edu

For questions about the status of your organization contact Secretary of Campus Organizations, Gina Grandillo at g-grandillo@onu.edu
