If this is coming out of an allocated account, make a note regarding which line item you would like to pull this from.
Provide the organization's account number. Ask the VP for Finance if you don't know it.
The student who took out the cash advance will need to submit a Deposit Form with unused money (if any) to the Business Office. Failure to do so will result in the student's account being billed.
Submit an Expense Report with receipts to the VP for Finance box in SIL to show proof of purchase. Receipts must be originals. The student must submit an Expense Report and receipts within TWO WEEKS after the event date noted on the Cash Advance. Submit a copy of the Deposit Form with the Expense Report if necessary.

Obtain all original receipts and fill out an Expense Report form (refer to example). Expense Report forms can be found in SIL.
Total all amounts and if applicable, subtract any cash advances.
Provide the correct account number you wish to pull from. If you don't know your account number, ask the VP for Finance.
Have the President or Treasurer sign the Expense Report. If you are the President or Treasurer and are wishing to get reimbursed, you will need to have another officer sign the "Club Officer Approval" section of the report.
After you have completed the Expense Report, make 2 copies of the Expense Report and receipts in SIL (one for your records and one to turn in).
Turn in the original, receipts, and 1 copy to the VP for Finance box in SIL. Your Expense Report will not be processed unless you submit a copy with the original.
Once your reimbursement has been processed, I will email you and palce the check in your organization's box in SIL.
