Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is my student organization's fund number?
    Your fund number is listed in your recognition letter sent by Student Leadership & Involvement Center  (SLIC). You can also get your student organization's fund number by emailing ASI at asi@csusm.edu or visiting the ASI Front Desk in USU 3700.
  • How do I use my student organization's funds?
    There are three options for making purchases using your student organization's funds:
    1. Someone in the club makes a  purchase out-of-pocket (example: pizza for a meeting) and submits an Expenditure Request Forms (ERF) with the itemized receipt (additional documentation may be required) to be reimbursed.
    2. An ERF made out to the vendor is submitted and a check is generated in the company’s name. A Payee Data Form must be completed if the vendor has not been paid before. 
    3. The ASI Student Org. Credit Card is used to pay for purchases over $100 and an ERF made out to ASI is submitted prior to using the card.
  • How long will my reimbursement take?
    Reimbursements are issued about 1-2 weeks AFTER the Expenditure Request Forms (ERF) has been completed with all the necessary documentation and signatures. Reimbursement checks are generally requested on Mondays and generated on Thursdays. If this is your first time being reimbursed or you have an address/name change, then accounting will need additional time to create/modify your account.
  • How do I use the ASI Credit Card?

    Submit an Expenditure Request Form (ERF) made out to:

    Associated Students, Inc. 
    333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd
    San Marcos, CA 92096
    760-750-4990
    asi@csusm.edu 

    Once the ERF has been approved, ASI will contact you to schedule a time to use the ASI Credit Card. There is a $100 minimum to use the ASI Credit Card. Purchases over $2,500 need additional approval and may need additional time to accommodate.

    There is a monthly balance for the ASI credit card, therefore this form of payment is first come first served.

  • How do I check my student organization's balance?
    The student organization balance sheet is posted on this page under "Quick Links" and is updated weekly. If you would like a breakdown of your account’s activity, please contact ASI.
  • How can a campus department transfer funds to my student organization?
    In order to transfer funds from a campus department to a student organization fund, please fill out an ERF with the following information: 
    • Student organization receiving the funds
    • Department giving the funds
    • Email of the person within the department who should receive the invoice
    • Amount you are receiving
    • Reason for receiving the funds
  • How do I get access my student organization's fund account?
    At the end of the Student Leadership and Involvement Center (SLIC) recognition process, the student organization’s President, Treasurer, and Advisor sign the Funds Administration Agreement (FAA). The officers who sign the FAA are the only ones who can sign off on Expenditure Request Forms (ERF). If you are having issues completing the form, please visit SLL in USU 3600 or email studentorg@csusm.edu.
  • How do I formally make an officer change for my student organization?
    Please complete the Officer Change Form on the Student Organization Recognition Page of the Student Leadership & Involvement Center (SLIC) website. Once the officer change is approved, SLL will send the Funds Administration Agreement (FAA) to the new officers. If you are having issues completing either form, please visit SLL in USU 3600 or email studentorg@csusm.edu.
  • How do I transfer funds from my student org account to another student org account?
    To transfer funds between student org accounts, the student org that is sending the funds needs to complete an Expenditure Request Form (ERF) made out to the receiving student org. Under the check recipient information section of the ERF, list the receiving student org’s name, contact information, and the school’s address. Please list the fund number of receiving student organization as well if you know it. For the required attachment, please include backup of why you are sending funds. This can be a flyer for a co-sponsored event, scoring rubric for a competition, or meeting minutes/email correspondence between officers showing the decision making process.
