Financial Reporting

Financial reporting is overseen on a bimester basis by the Students' Union Audit Committee. Audit Financial Reports are due at the end of the Fall Semester as well as at the end of the Winter Semester each year. You can use this template reporting form to help complete your financial report for each bimester. Submit the template form to the Student Group Services team at as well as your financial contact within the Audit Committee. If you have trouble contacting your financial contact in the Audit Committee or are uncertain who they are, please reach out to for assistance.

Audit Financial Reports are due on the following dates:

Spring/Summer/Fall Audit: Due on the first week of December.
Winter Audit: Due on the first week of March

Other SU Reporting Requirements

According to SU Bylaw 150, FAs must submit the following information to the SU's Audit Committee:

  • A schedule of any Departmental Associations and Affiliated Associations. (This is done when you register as a student group with SGS.)

  • A document confirming the legitimate selection of the Association’s officers and their contact information. (When new executives are elected send that information to as soon as possible so that they can get information on the summer retreat and other early events.)

  • An outline of organizational and financial goals. (Bring to a COFA meeting)

Student Group Registration

Don't forget to re-register your faculty association as a student group with Student Group Services. Information about re-registration will be emailed out by Student Group Services.

Transition Survival Kit

Discover Governance has created a new resource for faculty associations called the Transition Survival Kit. It was designed to help FA executives who got little to no transition or training get on their feet and figure out their positions, but it could be helpful to any FA looking for transition materials.

If you have any comments, questions, or constructive feedback about the Transition Survival Kit, please contact the Governance Team at
