ALL returning Orgs MUST complete the activation process beginning September 1st to be able to apply for funding in the fall and/or use their rollover funds. The following steps must be taken BEFORE applying for a general allocation and/or a grant allocation.  The account activation process only needs to be completed ONCE per academic year. 

 

 

Account activation

Every Registered Student Org that wishes to open an ASUCR account must activate their account yearly:

  • Accounts must be activated if it’s a new org or reactivated for returning Orgs each year.
  • Account must be activated any time after September 1st and will expire early June.
  • Student Org will not be able to apply for funding unless the account has been activated.
  • Access to rollover/income funds will not be available until the account has been activated.

It’s a three-step process

  • Step 1: Activate the account

    How to activate the account

    • View the Account Activation PowerPoint in its entirety.
    • Take the Authorized Signers Test - be sure to enter your first and last name when you log in.  

    • YOU DO NOT NEED TO PRINT/TURN IN A COPY OF YOUR TEST - Your test score will be verified by ASUCR.

    • You may take the test as many times as needed to pass with an 80% or higher.
    Requirements
    • Must pass the test with a minimum of 80%
    • A minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 members must complete the test (Members usually consist of the President, the VP, and/or the Treasurer. All signers must be current full-time undergraduate students, which means must be enrolled in at least 12 units and cannot be wait-listed for any classes below the 12 units. These individuals are known as the Authorized Signers.)
    • Once the requirements are met, complete the digital Authorized Signers Form.
  • Step 2: Preparing your budget

REMINDERS

  • No photocopied receipts will be accepted for reimbursements.
  • If you have several receipts that need to be reimbursed for one person, you do not need a requisition for each receipt.  You also do not have to itemize every item on the receipt on the requisition.  Example:  If you have a receipt from WalMart, Target and Domino's just list those on each line with a brief description and the total of the receipt.  On the explanation box, that is where you'll be more descriptive of what the items were for.  Please be as detailed as possible to avoid delays in your reimbursement. 
  • HUB Event Scheduling will require FAU/Payment five (5) business days prior to your event. If not received by then, your room reservation will be canceled. 
  • Proof of payment is required on every receipt for reimbursement. 
  • Receipts will not be accepted after 30 days from the date of the receipt.
  • General meeting expenses will not be reimbursed during Fall 2020 while campus is closed.
