    SAAC hears requests for supplemental funding every Tuesday at 8 p.m.

    Business Managers can obtain their organization’s account balances by contacting their accountant via email or by attending regular office hours. For updated account balances, please check your monthly reports, found in your individual mailboxes. In addition, the “Ledger Form” is available under the “Budgeting” section of the “Funding Your Student Organization” page. Using this form, Business Managers can independently track their group’s spending.
