Requesting SAF Funds

Any member of the campus community may submit a request for Student Activities Fee funding per the SAFC Guidelines.

The Annual Budgeting Process results in the recommendation for the level of S&A Fees during the ensuing fiscal year.

The Special Allocation Process provides funding for emergency expenditures during the current fiscal year.

Annual Budgeting Process

The annual budget process is the primary mechanism for recommending the distribution of Services and Activities Fees at the University of Washington Tacoma. Each spring, the SAFC considers program and budget proposals that seek funding for annual operating costs necessary to run an organization, department, or service during the ensuing academic year. Annual budgets will not include capital expenditures or planned expenditures for specific events or activities, with the exception of the SAB.

The committee announces the annual budget request submission process no later than the 3rd Friday in January of each year.
