Undergraduate Student Organization Funding

Understanding the Allocation of the Undergraduate Student Activity Fee

The Cornell University Board of Trustees charges the Student Assembly with proposing a student activity fee for the entire undergraduate student body on a bi-yearly basis. The SA is also responsible for proposing how the fee will be distributed among student organizations on campus. The proposal must be approved by the University President and Board of Trustees. Nearly every student organizations on campus is funded through a “By-Line” organization, or an organization that receives a direct portion of the student activity fee.

The process for setting the fee proposal is outlined in the Student Assembly Charter, mostly in Appendix A and Appendix B. For more information on starting a new By-Line funded organization, please contact the Office of the Assemblies.
