Administrative policy and procedures regarding publications by student organizations

  1. Purpose. All student groups must have adequate funding to support their publication.
  2. Applicability. This rule applies to materials published by student groups. It covers only those materials not receiving funding from the student media board.
  3. Procedure. The center for student involvement is responsible for determining whether or not the group has adequate funding to support its publication.
    1. All registered student organizations receiving money from university funds must have publications approved by the director of center for student involvement or designee, who will act in place of a major budget officer. The staff signature assures that the following verifications have been made:
      1. The group in question is a registered student organization;
      2. Sufficient funds exist in the treasury of the student group to support the publication;
      3. The publication being proposed does not involve an illegal use of state monies; and
      4. The spending of student activities funds is consistent with the original line item budget accepted by the undergraduate student government.
    2. Registered student organizations that do not receive university funds may choose to have publications processed through the office of student media. If they decide to utilize the office of student media, the same policy and procedures will apply as to those organizations funded by the student media board.
