Science Undergraduate Student Council

The School of Science Undergraduate Student Council (SOSUSC) serves as a conduit between undergraduate students enrolled in the School of Science and the University at large. It is a great way for undergraduate students to get involved and receive funding for their organizations. Our meetings are open to all Science Undergraduate Students.  Fall 2019 meetings have not been scheduled yet, but will be in the third floor SL/LD lounge.

Current Projects

Applied Sciences Internship Program

The current Council efforts are to implement an internship program specifically for IUPUI Science students. This is being executed in response to the overwhelming response for the need for internships for majors both in the life-health sciences, as well as outside the life-health sciences.

Funding Requests and Policies

How to request funding

The School of Science Undergraduate Student Council has funds to support science clubs' events. We ask that clubs interested in receiving funding throughout the academic year send a representative to our weekly council meetings. Clubs without regular representation will not receive funding. Please also ensure that your request will support undergraduate science students. We tend to favor requests which will support a large portion if not all undergraduate science students.
To submit a funding request, please visit this link. This online request  will allow you to submit a funding request form online. You can submit your sign-in sheets and itemized receipts to the SOSUSC Treasurer in person or via email at sostres@iupui.edu.

Reimbursements - 60 Day Policy

University policy requires that all reimbursements for out-of-pocket expenses be substantiated within 60 days of the original purchase date, or be subject to tax withholding.  The complete policy can be found at:

https://policies.iu.edu/policies/fin-acc-620-reimbursement-under-accountable-plan/index.html

Drawings, Games, and Prizes Policy

University units and registered (recognized) student organizations may conduct drawings or other "games of chance" to encourage attendance at or participation in events or activities if a) the value of any prize offered does not exceed $300 and b) the total value of all prizes at any event does not exceed $900.  The complete policy can be found at:

https://policies.iu.edu/policies/fin-acc-640-drawings-games-prizes/index.html

Customer Reward Cards and Reimbursements

When purchasing items or food for a student organization for which you are seeking reimbursement, do not use your personal customer benefit / point cards.  Examples include Speedway Speedy Rewards or Kroger Plus Cards.  The University views this as unethical, as it is "personal gain from a University business transaction."  The complete Purchasing Ethics policy can be found at:
