Student Activity Fee Budget Requests

COVID-19 Notice

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the online modality for fall 2020, all student club-sponsored meetings and events will be held virtually until further notice. As a result, PGBS will not be charging a full-time PGBS Student Activity Fee for the fall 2020 term. Therefore, funding will not be available for student club budget requests.

Graziadio Student Advisory Board

Facilitated by the Office of Student Engagement and Success, the Graziadio Student Advisory Board (GSAB) is an advisory body that provides a representative student voice on matters involving the student experience outside the classroom, including allocation of the PGBS Full-Time Student Activity Fee and the development and implementation of student-focused programs, initiatives, and services.

Budget Request Process Overview

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

To be eligible for Student Activity Fee funds, student clubs must have at least 75% full-time student members listed on their Peppervine roster.

Budget Request Instructions

  1. Review the funding eligibility and requirements outlined in the Graziadio Business School Student Club Handbook
  2. Please note that all event-related budget requests must be discussed with Jessica Rubalcava, Assistant Director of Student Engagement at jessica.rubalcava@pepperdine.edu prior to submitting the purchase request.
  3. It is highly recommended that, when building a budget, student clubs review current pricing for food, promotional items, or other goods from the Student Engagement and Success Preferred Vendor List.
  4. In your budget request, please be sure to account for 10% sales tax; an 18 - 20% tip (for food deliveries or restaurants); and any applicable delivery fees.
