The Student Activity Fee is collected for the purpose of supporting programs and services in all aspects of student life. Student-centered programs comprised of and led by students are often supported by these fees, which aim to promote self-governance and student leadership development. A Student Activity Fee Committee allocates a portion of the student activity fee to particular categories of interest through six "fee councils," and gives a portion to the various Colleges, who distribute funding to groups within their purview.
College of Law student organizations are funded from Student Activity Fees. The Student Activity Fee Council (SAFC) allocates funding to the Student Bar Association every fiscal year for the College of Law organizations. All organizations are under the Student Bar Association (SBA) umbrella and are funded from them (excluding Moot Court, Law Review and Student Trial Lawyers Association).
All student organizations must read and adhere to the Law Student Organization Student Activity (SA) Fee Guide that explains rules and procedures relating to the SA Fee budgets and spending SA Funds. Fee Guide »
