Not only can they answer your questions, but they can also help you by providing you with a sample constitution.
Student Activity Fee: If you have successfully applied for a budget from the Student Government Board, the monies from which your budget is generated is the Student Activity Fee. KUSSI coordinates the collection of this fee and implements the allocations that SGB makes from this fund.

Budget accounts are those accounts that are provided to SGA-sponsored student organizations. Private accounts are where you place money generated from fundraisers and the collection of dues.

Bill Payment: When you need to buy supplies or pay other bills, the KUSSI Accounting Office can generate (tax exempt) purchase orders for your group. They also will collect the receipts from your expenses and generate checks for you.
Additional Allocations/Conference Requests: If you need to request additional funding from the SGB, then KUSSI is the place to go to get these forms.
