SU General Budget

General Overview

The Student Union General Budget is comprised of 1% of all undergraduate students’ tuition—which totals around $3.5 million. These funds go towards programs and initiatives that better the undergraduate experience here at WashU, through student groups, campus partnerships and Student Union events.

Each February, the Vice President of Finance presents all requests made through the General Budget for the following academic year to the legislative representatives of Senate and Treasury at a joint session. It is the job of the Senators and Treasury Representatives to recommend to the VP Finance which requests should be funded and then they ultimately vote on the final budget for the next year.
