Services & Activities/Technology Fee Process

Annually, we conduct a budget process to allocate Service and Activities (S&A) & the Technology fees for the upcoming year. The funds are for the 2020-2021 academic year and will be available to use on July 1, 2020. In order to apply for funding, an organization or department must go through the annual budget request process.

In order to ensure that clubs know how to write and submit a budget, the budget committee is going to be holding training sessions, called Budget School, to help guide them through the process. Three sessions will be held to give everyone a chance to attend this training. It is imperative that a representative from your club – preferably your club’s financial officer – be at one of these three sessions to make your club’s budget process easier. If your request is not in on time then your club will have no funding for next year. This year budget school will be held on the following dates:

  • January 14, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.
  • January 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.
  • February 4, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

Any questions regarding this process can be directed to Services and Activities/Technology Fee Committee Chair via email at as.budget@ghc.edu.
