Student Activity Fee Budget Requests

Student Life Council 

The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School (PGBS) Student Life Council (SLC) is an advisory body that provides a representative student voice on matters involving the full-time student experience outside the classroom, including allocation of the PGBS Student Activity Fee and the development and implementation of student-focused programs, initiatives, and services.

Budget Request Process Overview

Registered student organizations and eligible PGBS departments or entities may request Student Activity Fee funds for student service/activity-related programs. Budget requests are accepted on a rolling basis for individual events, activities or initiatives that further the engagement, education, and development of the full-time Graziadio student body at large.

The SLC meets on a bi-weekly basis during each academic term to review budget requests. Therefore, organizations seeking funding are encouraged to plan in advance in order to allow adequate time to receive notice of funding from the SLC prior to planning an event.
