  • Trophies
  • Promotional items for members
  • Fundraising
  • Concerts
  • End-of-year/Term Banquets
  • T-shirts
  • More than one (1) meal per event
  • Conferences (see “Conference Funding” section below)

If your organization would like to request an exemption, e-mail SAFAC at safac@drexel.edu with details of your request.  SAFAC will review requests on a case-by-case basis.  Purchases made without approval will not be reimbursed.

 

SAFAC Expenses

Requirements to Spend SAFAC Allocations
Student organizations must be fully recognized to spend SAFAC 17-account allocations.

Further, your treasurer must be identified on your group’s DragonLink roster page, and he/she must attend the SAFAC Treasurer Training Session as well as take the subsequent quiz on DragonLink. The quiz can be found on the DragonLink homepage at the top alerts section or once logged-in, by using this link: https://drexel.collegiatelink.net/form/start/3788.  Failure to complete the complete the recognition process and treasurer training jeopardizes current funding and the potential to apply for future funding.

 

VIEW Your Budgets Online

Your organization finances are viewable in WebFinance (an internal University financial tracking system). This system can be accessed through our website by clicking the top menu “Org Budgets Online”. Your username is “so” for student organization followed by your 17-account number (i.e. so170000). Your password, if unknown, will need to be reset by clicking the link on the main page of CollegiateLink if your former treasurer or officers did not pass it along to you. It typically takes 2-3 business days to get your new temporary password. All password inquiries can be sent to Andrea Shaw, Coordinator of Campus Activities.

 

Treasure Training

Treasurer Training is now an in person training session which is part of the Student Organization Recognition Process. If you have missed the scheduled sessions or are a new Treasurer please email safac@drexel.edu to schedule a time to review this information.

You can access Information and Resources from your cell phone on our SAFAC Mobile Website!
