ATTENTION: New Student Activity and Travel Funding Guidelines

ATTENTION: SCOMSA does not reimburse AMAZON orders because of a school-wide policy. Please use the Amazon order form for any AMAZON purchases.





SCOMSA offers funding for on campus events, travel for conferences and wellness events. All funds must be requested and approved by SCOMSA before you can use the money. Funding requests must be submitted at least 3 days prior to the SCOMSA meeting before your event. No retroactive funding will be available. SCOMSA meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month, so this means all funding requests must be submitted the Sunday before the meeting by 11:59 pm


We encourage that you order as many things as possible directly through the SAO, see “Planning Events”. If reimbursements are needed please submit requests within 30 days of the event. You MUST have submitted a funding request that was approved at a SCOMSA meeting before requesting reimbursements. Receipts must be ITEMIZED or they will not be accepted.  Online Reimbursement Forms are available for Travel and Student Activities. The SCOMSA treasurer will review the reimbursement form and then submit it to Amanda Kaufman in the Student Affairs Office. The check will be processed and be ready within 4-6 weeks, allowing additional time for mailing.
