SOAC Funding

Each year the Rayburn Student Center makes funding available for Registered Student Organizations to host events, travel to conferences, and many other activities for the enhancement of student life at A&M-Commerce. These funds are approved and distributed by the Student Organization Allocations Committee (SOAC). 

All Registered Student Organizations that are in good standing are eligible to apply for funding through SOAC. Please refer to the Funding Guidelines and the application documents at the links below to find out more about funding.
