FUND and PLAN your PROGRAMS
Have a programming idea? Not sure how to get started? Use the resources below and contact the CAC staff early so we can help you plan!
For ANY form of programming it is best that you request it/start planning as soon as you have the idea. MOST FORMS OF PROGRAMMING REQUIRE AT LEAST SIX WEEKS TO PLAN. If you don’t come to us with at least six weeks lead time we cannot guarantee that it is doable. This is particularly important if you are going to be bringing in off-campus vendors or guests or paying for services. For more information on programming read the Guidelines for Student Programming linked below.
Types of Funding Available
For all forms of funding, start by filling out the Information Request Form so we can help you get to the right place.

FAQs and Common Mistakes
- GOOD STANDING – All RSOs must maintain good standing with the university or they will loose the ability to acquire funding, reserve spaces, etc. Go here to find out how to stay in Good Standing.
- RESERVE ROOMS – my going to the portal → Campus Resources → Reservation System. Rooms fill up fast, so reserve them as soon as you know you need it. The room IS NOT reserved until you get a confirmation. Your submission only means you have requested the space.
- FUNDRAISING – You must get permission prior to reserving a space to fundraise or holding a fundraiser. Go here to submit the form.
- PROGRAMMING – The energy for your program has to come from you/your organization. Be realistic with yourselves about planning/timelines.
- OFF-CAMPUS GUESTS – Even if you aren’t paying them, if they are coming on campus for any official capacity they will need to complete waivers.
- DEADLINES – They are not arbitrary. If you miss one we may not be able to help you.
- ADVERTISING – Flyers must be approved and stamped by the INFO CENTER in the Union Lobby, and can only be posted in designated flyer areas. Off-campus programs cannot be advertised on campus. Remember when you are planning your programs that your event will only be successful if people know about it… an advertising plan is just as important as the actual program.
