You can get both the RSO and IELD allocation forms from three locations:

- The Student Association V-Space (In “Documents” bar under “Allocation Request Forms”)

2. What are RSO and IELD allocations?

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.

3. What do I have to do before I attend an Allocations Committee meeting?

5. Do I have to attend an Allocations Committee or House meeting to be considered for an allocation?

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.

6. What if I cannot make it to the Allocations Committee meeting?

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.

8. What are start up funds and when would my organization be eligible for?

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.

9. How much funding may a student receive during the year?

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.

10. When will I receive its funds?

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.

11. When do I need to turn my receipts in?

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.

12. How will I receive my funds?

Your funds will either be direct deposited into your SVSU account or a check will be made out to you.

13. Can I appeal a decision made by the Allocations Committee about my allocation?

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.
