You can get both the RSO and IELD allocation forms from three locations:
- The Student Association office has copies printed off (Doan 103)
- The Student Association website (located in the “Allocations” bar under “Allocations Forms”)
- The Student Association V-Space (In “Documents” bar under “Allocation Request Forms”)
RSO allocations are funds given to a Registered Student Organization when they have gone through the proper allocations process and have been granted those funds by the Allocations Committee. An IELD allocation is an Individual Enrichment and Leadership Development allocation targeted at SVSU students who want to receive funds to develop themselves in their particular academic focus or leadership style. Generally they are attending a conference or event geared toward those interests, and must not be representing a Registered Student Organization.
You must first pick up and fill out an allocation form. After turning in the completed form the Allocations Director will be in contact with you and set up a date for you to attend the meeting.
Your completed allocation form can be turned in at Student Associations office (Doan 103) or through emailing our Allocation Director, Tatum Goldufsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you must attend an Allocations Committee meeting in order to be considered for an allocation. From there you might have to attend a House meeting if your allocation does not unanimously pass or get rejected by the committee.
We understand that some may not be able to attend the meeting due to scheduling difficulties. If that is the case, we ask that you sent someone from your organization in your place who is knowledgeable about your allocation request.
RSO may receive 50% of expenses up to $1500 in a given year, with no more than $750 allocated for conferences, formals, and/or banquets.
First-year organizations may be allocated special funds to help purchase new equipment or other necessary items. These funds will be 75% of total expenses up to $600.00. First-year organizations may also receive up to $1,500, but these funds may only cover up to 50% of expenses. This special allocation will only be given out during the first year an organization is registered with Student Life.
An SVSU student has the ability to receive 50% of expenses up to $300.00 in IELD allocation money over the course of an academic year. Multiple requests may be made, provided they do not request more than $300.00 combined.
Your funds will begin to be processed after you have turned in all of your receipts that pertain to your allocation. It normally takes between one or two weeks after you have turned in all of your receipts for you to get your money. How long it takes to get your money in your account, or a check made out to you generally depends on how busy SVSU’s Cashier Office is.
Receipts must be turned in 10 days after your event/ conference unless you have already spoken with the Allocations Director about a special circumstance. The sooner you get us your receipts, the sooner that you will get reimbursed.
Your funds will either be direct deposited into your SVSU account or a check will be made out to you.
Yes, any denied request during the allocation process may be appealed. You have ten business days to file a written grievance with the Student Association President. The President will review the request and either (a) let the House decision stand, or (b) resubmit the allocation to the House. If the request is resubmitted to the House, the standard allocations process will be followed and will include an explanation from the President.
RSO and IELD allocation forms must be turned in by 4:30 p.m. on April 5, 2012.
You are always welcome to stop by the Student Association Office (Doan 103) or call at (989) 964-4232, or email our Allocation Director, Abbigail Behmlander at email@example.com
