How do I open a SFO bank account?

Once your organization has been granted full recognition from the Student Senate, you can obtain and complete a SFO Account Authorization Form located at the front desk of Business Services or found on the Business Services website under SFO Forms. The authorization form must be completed by the faculty adviser and two student officers. Upon completion, the form is then delivered to Business Services for review and approval. If the account is approved, an account number will be established and all authorized individuals will be notified.

What should I do when a student officer is no longer apart of the organization?

If there is a change in authorized student officers, a new SFO Account Authorization Form must be completed and filed with Business Services. The new form must be signed by all who will remain on the account and by the new student to be added to the account.

Is there anything I need to do at the beginning of the school year to maintain my SFO bank account?

Yes! When a new school year begins, often the student officers change; thus, a new SFO Account Authorization Form must be completed and filed with Business Services. All authorized signers must sign the new form. Check requests will not be processed until a new form is on file for the current fiscal year.
