Before an event
- Have you met with your advisor? You must get their approval before preceding. They are there to help guide your event planning process and ensure that you are in compliance with university policies.
- Are you requesting funding from Sixth College Student Council? Be sure to visit the funding section of their website.
- Make sure that you print enough attendee lists for the expected number. Save a tree and print double sided.
- Are you giving away prizes at your event? If you are, fill out the Prize Distribution Form before the event. Be sure to have it with you on the day of the event so that you can collect the names and PIDs of your lucky winners.
- If you are planning ahead, your advisor has the resources to make event supply purchases on your behalf via a university express card, cash advance, or purchase order. This means you will not have to front your own money and wait to get reimbursed! PLAN AHEAD!!!!
After an event
- If you received funding from Sixth College Student Council you will need to submit a post budget that records your actual expenses for the event along with an Event Evaluation Form. Both need to be submitted to the VP of Finance (email@example.com) and the Executive Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Did you make a purchase using you own money? Submit a Reimbursement Request Form to the Executive Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs (email@example.com). The form should be completely filled out, signed by your advisor, and turned in with original receipts, attendee lists, and if applicable the Prize Distribution Form.
