Student Government Association

New organizations seeking recognition must have their proposed application and constitution for charter reviewed by the SGA. In addition, budget requests from USC Upstate clubs require SGA consideration and recommendation. The SGA president is a member of important university committees and makes recommendations for appointments of students to several others.  

Special Projects Funding

Special project funding is available for student organizations that need additional funds to travel or sponsor a special program that would require funding beyond their means. The organization submits a Special Project Funding Request form. This forms can be submitted throughout the year, but should be submitted in a timely manner. These applications will be reviewed seven times during the year. Organizations will need to plan ahead and submit these requests in time to be considered.

Complete the Special Projects Funding Application online.

Want to Get Involved?

Getting involved in SGA is as easy as showing up for a meeting. Any student can come to a meeting and voice their opinion and bring issues to the floor. If you want to actually serve on SGA, start by joining a student organization or talking to someone in your academic program. We have senators for each academic school and student organization.
