Annual Registration and Budget

Annual Registration

Each year, a GSO in good standing must submit the following documents to the GSA Office, The Commons 308, before the second Senate meeting of the academic year:

  1. Registration form
  2. Budget Form

If a GSO was not active at the end of the previous academic year,  additional registration procedures must be followed.  Information on these procedures can be found here.

Attendance Requirement

GSO Officers are leaders on campus. At least one GSO Officer must be present at all GSA Senate meetings. These meetings serve as a forum to discuss relevant issues to graduate students. GSO Officers are also voting members of the GSA Senate and shape UMBC in this role.

More than two missed GSA Senate meetings may result in the suspension of the GSO budget.

Event/Expenditure Co-Sponsorship

Be advised that each event requires a separate Co-sponsorship form and if food will be purchased, a Meal pre-approval form.  Approval for each event and expenditure must be sought at least two full weeks before the day of the event or purchase.

 Electronic Copies

The GSA highly recommends that GSO Budgets are submitted electronically so that future GSO leaders can have access to an electronic and editable copy of these documents.
