Navigate Club Budgets & Finance
Rensselaer Union is one of the few student organizations in the country with a student activity fee allocated by a board consisting of only students. The board allocating the Rensselaer Union budget, including Rensselaer Union clubs and organizations, is called the Executive Board, which consists of 15 voting members appointed by, and presided over, by the President of the Union.
Below is information regarding budgeting guidelines and procedures, as well as downloadable forms. For more information on the Student Activity Fee and the Union Annual Report, visit Rensselaer Union Finance.
Each December and January, the Executive Board reviews administrative and funded club budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. Each year clubs are asked to review current budget guidelines to aid them in crafting a thoughtful budget adhering to present policy set forth by the Executive Board.
Rensselaer Union clubs who travel for competitions and events must follow specific rules and fill out forms in advance of their travel. If your club travels, please review Club Travel guidelines prior to scheduling travel.
