SGA Finance Requests

Procedures are current and approved by the SGA General Assembly as of January, 2020


Truckee Meadows Community College is a public institution, and as such is subject to state laws governing the handling of funds (which includes yearly audits of all accounts). TMCC has established policies and procedures that govern financial practices for the college. All TMCC Departments, Committees and Student Government Association (SGA) recognized student organizations must abide by the rules.

Each year the SGA General Assembly adopts an annual budget that approves the appropriations of funds for the subsequent fiscal year. Within this budget, the SGA General Assembly allocates a fixed amount of money for Department/Committee request as well as Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) requests.

The funds provided through the SGA come from the Student Association Fee. The funds must be spent appropriately, following SGA, TMCC and NSHE policies and procedures. To ensure the finance process is transparent, efficient and funds are spent in a responsible manner, the Finance Committee has a set process to review and approve requests.
