Texas Tech University

FY23 Funding Process

Purpose

One of the purposes of the Student Senate Committee on Budget and Finance is to administer the allocation of a portion of Student Service Fees received by the Student Government Association specifically for student organizations. These funds are budgeted by the University to be utilized for nonacademic programs and services for students. The Student Service Fee Committee is comprised of approximately five members from the Student Senate and four staff members within the University.

The Committee on Budget and Finance has strict rules and policies by which we operate. These rules can be found in the SGA Funding Regulations Handbook.
