Gold Status - Five Easy Steps to Apply
Once a student organization is a Maroon Status organization for fifteen (15) academic weeks, a student organization may apply for SGA Gold Status by completing an SGA Gold Status Application Form in the Office of Student Union & Involvement Services (MSU 153). The Office of Student Union & Involvement Services then forwards this completed application an a copy of the student organizations' mission statement and bylaws to the SGB Parliamentarian to be reviewed by the SGB Constitutions & Policy Committee.
The student organization president and advisor will receive a status letter within three (3) weeks of submitting their application to the SGB Constitutions & Policy Committee. This status letter will outline any necessary revisions to the mission statement and bylaws.
The student organization president has thirty (30) days to complete the revisions and resubmit the mission statement and bylaws to the SGB Consititutions & Policy Committee.
Once all revisions are completed, the SGB Constitutions & Policy Committee will recommend to the Student Government Board that SGA Gold Status be approved. Once approved by the Student Government Board, the mission statement and bylaws will be forwarded to the Student Affairs Committee and the University President for final approval.
The student organization will receive a final approval letter granting SGA Gold Status, once all approvals have been secured. Once approval letter is received, the student organizations' treasurer may request SGA Budget funding by contacting the KUSSI Service Center to schedule a meeting with the SGB Budget & Finance Committee.
