Student Government Association

East Tennessee State University

B.U.C. Fund

The BUC Fund is a student activity fund controlled by the Student Government Association. Currently, each student pays $30.00 per semester to the SGA's BUC Fund. A portion of this money is used to pay for Homecoming, Civility Week, and the SGA major events each semester (concerts, comedy shows, etc.). The remaining money is put into a General Fund that is used to fund student organizations and activities through SAAC Applications or through BUC Fund. Groups may not apply for both SAAC and BUC Fund unless there are extraordinary circumstances. To be deemed eligible for BUC Funding, events should be well thought out and a detailed budget and itinerary planned. Please note that the SGA Senate only funds those events that will benefit a majority of the student body, since all students "pay into" our account. For more information about the SGA BUC Fund, please refer to the Student Government Association's Constitution and Code of Laws.
