Services & Activities/Student Technology Fee Process

Requests for the 2020-2021 budget allocation have closed. All additional requests for S&A / Student Technology Fee for this year must be submitted as a contingency request

2021-2022 Process
Annually, we conduct a budget process to allocate Service and Activities (S&A) & the Student Technology fees for the upcoming year. The budget process for funding for the 2021-2022 academic year will take place during Winter Term 2021. Funds that are approved through this process become available on July 1st 2021. In order to apply for funding, a club, organization, program, or department must go through the annual budget request process.

In order to ensure that those applying for funding know how to write and submit a budget request, the budget committee will hold training sessions, called "Budget School," to help guide them through the process. It is imperative that a representative from your club, organization, program, or department – preferably your club’s financial officer or for departments/programs your director/chair – be at one of these three sessions to ensure that you fully understand the process and to make the process as easy as possible. If your request is not submitted on time then you will have no funding for next year, though you may be able to apply for supplemental funds during the academic year.  

The timeline for the 2021-2022 Budget School are below:
