The Segregated University Fee Allocation Commission (SUFAC) is the student governmental body that is charged with two major responsibilities. SUFAC's major task is the distribution of the allocable funds generated by the student activities fee required of each student at the university. For the 2010-2011 fiscal year, the fee paid by each student amounts to $98, and the total allocations to 91 organizations and departments totaled $640,000. Any recognized campus organization or university department may request money from SUFAC. For the 2010-2011 fiscal year, SUFAC received requests from 96 organizations or departments which totaled $1,207,311.
SUFAC is also responsible for reviewing, and advising the Chancellor regarding, the non-allocable fees charged to students. These fees support the cost of parking, stadium, health, Ullsvik Center, textbook, Children's Center, PAC, ID systems, and municipal services. The Chancellor, prior to each year, sets these fees after consulting with SUFAC. For the 2009-2010 fiscal year, the allocable and non-allocable fee paid by each student amounts to $990.
The commission consists of two student representatives from each college (BILSA, LAE, EMS), two student representatives elected at large, and two student representatives appointed by Student Senate. Non-voting ex-officio members of the commission include an administrative liaison, representing the Chancellor's Office; a faculty representative, appointed by the Faculty Senate; and a commission advisor appointed by the Assistant Chancellor for Student Affairs. Student Senate may appoint an ex-officio member at their discretion.
