Organization funding comes from a portion of the student activity fee paid by each undergraduate student in the “Traditional Day Program.” Therefore, the money allocated to your organization belongs to all undergraduate students and therefore should benefit all students as much as possible. Officially recognized organizations may request funds from the ICC Executive Board each spring semester through the reregistration process. Organization advisors and leadership will receive information on this process each March/April including a funding request form deadline. Funding requests are reviewed individually by the ICC Executive Board with oversight by ADSE staff. Once funding is determined, each organization will receive an email explaining their funding for the upcoming year. Allocations are deposited into organization spending accounts after July 1 each year.

Consideration for annual funding allocations will be based on:

  • Participation in fall & spring connect fairs.
  • Meeting the Social, Spirit, and Service requirements
  • Meeting the 4 organization meetings/event requirements.
  • Meeting 7 monthly leadership meeting requirements
  • Keeping Presence up-to-date at all times.
  • Value added to the overall student experience at the University
  • Service to the University Community.
  • Overlap with other existing student organizations
  • How the previous year’s funding was used
  • The number of active members.
  • Fundraising efforts.
  • Overall number of organizations requesting allocations.
  • Whether and to what extent the organization remains in compliance with criteria 2-11 under “Process for Approval by the the Inter-Club Council” as set forth above.
  • Adherence to the guidelines for organization spending (see below.)


Organizations are encouraged to raise funds to supplement their annual funding allocations to help pay for events such as conferences, travel expenses etc. A Fundraising Proposal Form must be submitted online and approved by the Finance Office and ADSE staff at least two weeks before any fundraiser may be held. Confirmation of approval will be sent via email to the organization advisor along with any specific guidance on holding the particular event.
