Financial Procedures

Requesting Funding

The Student Bar Association will be the main source of funding for most Student Organization evens.  If you need SBA funding for travel or an upcoming event, please make sure you submit a LEAF request a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.  The SBA Appropriations Committee reviews and votes on funding requests every Tuesday. Requests submitted before Tuesday at 12:00 pm will be reviewed during this time. The Appropriations Committee can be reached at

  • Please complete all fields of LEAF request with as much specific information as possible as well as an itemized list of costs. 
  • Members must obtain approval from student organization board members before requesting travel funding on behalf of the organization. 
  • Please print a copy of the approved LEAF request for reimbursement purposes. 
  • Remember that funding is distributed on a first come, first serve basis. 

Getting Reimbursed

If you were approved for funding from SBA, you will need to make purchases with personal finances and then get reimbursed.  Please complete the following steps to receive your reimbursement:

  1. Access and fill out a Check Request Form for Student Government Reimbursements.
  2. Be sure to fill out the form completely  including who, what, when, where and why on the form.
  3. Bring this form printed and signed to the front desk in suite 1000 along with:

    • An itemized receipt taped to a white 8.8 x 11 blank sheet of paper.
    • LEAF funding approval email or LEAF funding request must be printed and attached.
    • Check request cover sheets must be typed and printed in full resolution.
    • Proof of advertising (a flyer or copy of e-mail that was sent out will work)
    • Sign in sheet with full first and last name, email, and signature. Must be the original, copies will not be accepted.
    • If you are getting reimbursed from SBA and NOT your student organization, please leave the student account number and name fields blank in addition to the signature line.

On the Check Request Form you can opt to have a check mailed to you or you can mark it for pick-up.  If you choose pick-up the checks will be waiting for you at the ASUCI Main Office in the Student Center
