Student Functions | Kent State University

Student Functions

Student Functions:

Student Functions are identified as any informal social gatherings (i.e. Ice skating, attending a game, etc. ). If staff or faculty do participate, the event is no longer a pure student function and requires an extra level of approval at the EO level.  Pure student functions should be charged to 77034 and do not require EO approval. Student functions in which only students participate, you can charge to 77034, use a p-card (food/refreshments prohibited), and by-pass Provost Office approval.  Student functions which include one or more faculty or staff should be charged to 71202 or 71203, cannot be paid for using a p-card, and require Provost Office approval.
