Chartering & Funding Organizations

About SGA Charters

The SGA has the power to grant official status to student organizations that apply for a charter. The SGA has chartered over 150 student organizations, athletic teams, clubs, and special interest groups on campus. Chartered organizations can apply for funds through the Student Activities Fee, apply for space in the College Union, deposit funds in a College account, and represent themselves outside the College community. The SGA strongly believes that student organizations increase wellness, provide students a means of pursuing diverse interests outside formal academic settings, and advance intellectual, cultural, spiritual and social development. The SGA thus encourages organizations to get involved and apply for an SGA charter.

Get Funding

Student organizations holding an SGA charter are eligible to receive funding from the Student Activities Fee administered by the Activities Tax Council. The ATC, as mandated by the Student Government, is responsible for allocating and supervising the use of the Student Activities Fee. Given that this tax constitutes one percent of the comprehensive tuition bill, all allocations must directly benefit the entire student body.
