The Student Activity Budget Committee (SABC) is intended to provide support for Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) at UMSL for opportunities to which they might not otherwise have access. SABC's purpose is to provide partial financial support to RSOs so they can host events, participate in professional and team development activities, and assist with common operating expenses associated with student organizations. While SABC provides this assistance to RSOs with their activities and expenses, student organizations are encouraged to seek other sources of support in order to be financially self-sufficient. RSOs should never rely solely on SABC funding to cover 100% of their expenses. The purpose of SABC funding is to support and encourage RSOs as they contribute to the student experience at UMSL.

If your student organization was approved for funding from SABC, but a member of the organization purchased the approved items on their own, this information is for you! The person who made the purchase will need to digitally complete a Reimbursement/Voucher Form & a W-9 Form (download below). These completed forms will need to be combined with a digital copy of the receipt into one PDF. This PDF will then be attached to a Payment Request in Triton Connect.
A few reminders when it comes to being reimbursed:
Student groups shall not receive more than $1,000 in general operations funding per academic year.
Student groups shall not receive more than $2,000 in team development funding per academic year.
Student groups can request up to $2,000 of programming funds per semester, but the cost of one single event may not exceed $1,000.
The Student Activity Budget Committee (SABC) is always looking for new members! This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who is looking to get involved on campus.
SABC meeting times shift based on members’ availability each semester. Meetings typically last thirty minutes to an hour.
