Deposit Forms

To deposit funds into your account and to deposit unused money from Cash Advance:

  • Obtain a deposit form from the Business Office or SIL and calculate all cash and checks that are being deposited
  • Turn in the form and money to the Business Office
  • Keep the pink copy for your records
  • Submit the pink copy to the VP for Finance box in SIL and your account will be updated.

Never leave cash in your mailbox! Coordinate with SIL to leave money in a safe place, if needed. 

Turn around time: seven (7) business days

For the Deposit form, please pick up a carbon copy from either the Business Office or SIL.

Cash Advance

To obtain money in advance for purchases:

  • Fill out the Cash Advance Request with the amount needed (maximum amount is $500). 
  • Give a detailed explanation of how the funds will be used, including the date and description of the event.
  • 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. Check with SIL staff if you do not 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.
  • Cash Advance Requests MUST be submitted at least two weeks before the event date. No exceptions will be made. Organizations may only have one Cash Advance outstanding at a time.

Turn around time: two (2) weeks

  • 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).

The Associated Students have set up a fund for organization copying. Organizations are allowed to make up to 25 copies at a time when using the copy machine in Student Involvement and Leadership. Organizations can ask the SIL staff for the copy machine code. Flyers will be returned to your box within 24 hours from the time you drop them off. If a organization wishes to do a bigger copy job through the Print Shop, they must charge it to their allocated or fundraised account by writing their proper account number on the Print Shop Requisition form.
