Preparing the Budget Request

Once you have planned your budget and feel comfortable with the program components, login to the Student Organization System (SOS) website (www.sc.edu/sos) to enter your budget. If you need to request your organization’s login credentials, please visit the Leadership and Service Center to find the Leadership Coach for Student Organizations. You must be an officer on Garnet Gate to obtain this information.

Once you complete and submit your budget request in SOS, there are specific steps for your organization:
