SAC Budget over $700 - Due Oct. 28!

All student organizations that are planning to travel, plan an event or purchase anything for their student organization in the spring of 2004 that costs more than $700 MUST submit the budget to the SOAR Office prior to Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 4 p.m. There is no way around this rule! Plan ahead, or your organization will only get up to $700 for the rest of the year.

Also note that if your budget is over $2,000 you must also meet with a member of the SOAR staff prior to turning in the budget.
