How To Get Club Funding 

Align Event Format and Timelines

Decide what kind of virtual event you are having. View the event formats to help! Depending on which event format you are requesting funding for, the timelines change between 5 and 4 weeks from submission date to event date. If you are requesting funding for simple technology purchase, the timeline is 3 weeks since it is not an event.

Submit A Budget Request on Engage

After you curating your proposed event plans, you are ready to submit a budget request to AUCC! Budget Requests are located on Engage. Click the "View Tutorial" button to learn more about submitting a budget request. You will need a quote for any request. A quote is an image that proves the price of the items being requested. The most common quote is a screenshot of an online cart. Simply pretend that you are going to buy the items online and then screenshot the cart before the site asks for payment. Do not actually buy the items. AUCC does not reimburse under any circumstances.

Set Up Necessary Meetings

This semester all events require a  meeting with your AUCC Club Consultant and a CSI advisor. Note that your CSI advisor and your Club Consultant are not the same person. Club Consultant meeting are on Tuesday's and Wednesday's. After submitting your budget request, you should immediately schedule a meeting with your Club Consultant. If you are approved by AUCC, you will receive an email to schedule a meeting with a CSI advisor.

Wait for Budget Request Review

After your meeting with a Club Consultant, you may have to revise your initial submission. Final submissions are due by 12pm on Friday's. AUCC reviews allocations on Friday afternoons. A decision and "Next Steps" email will be sent to your student organization email at your Club Consultant's earliest office hours. 

Follow the instructions in Next Steps Email

Depending on your event format and allocation decision, you will receive an email detailing the next steps for completing your event planning and purchase. If you have specific questions, reach out to your Club Consultant.
