Ball State Student Activity Fees provide financial support for co-curricular engagement opportunities for all students.
Portions of the Student Organization Fund (SOF) are made available to recognized student organizations in accordance with the fund’s policy.
Funds may be used for activities, programs, resources, services, or events that enhance the cultural, recreational, social, and/or intellectual life of the University.
Funds will be awarded in a viewpoint-neutral manner through the allocation process.
Any recognized student organization that wants to plan activities, programs, resource, services, and events using the fund may submit a request.
Student Organizations are strongly encouraged to review the Student Organization Fund Allocation Policy (PDF) before submitting a Student Activities Budget Request Form.

Student organizations are eligible to submit funding requests at various points through the year.
Student organizations who have already been allocated funds from the Student Organization Fund Allocations Committee must show proof of spending by submitting an expense report to the Office of Student Life within 10 business days of the event, activity, program, resource, travel, or operational event.
The Expense Report is comprised of three separate sections:
- Organization Information
- Activity Information
- Expense Information (anticipated/estimated and final expenses)
Each section should be completed before the report is submitted.

Reallocation of Funds
In some instances, an organization has been allocated funds for an event and that event is unable to take place. If an organization is in need of a reallocation of the funds awarded, complete the Reallocation of Funds form. Funds can only be reallocated toward events taking place in the same academic year as funds originally awarded.
