We advise both the president and secondary leader co-sign on the bank account each year with the treasurer so that organizations don’t lose access to their own bank accounts. If none of these individuals are listed on the bank account for your organization, we recommend you work with your bank to resolve the issue.
Student Activities is not involved in management or oversight of student organization bank accounts whatsoever as student organizations are entities independent from the University. We do not hold records of your bank accounts. The information we need in order to pay you is only your organization’s name and EIN. If you apply for a new bank account, you will likely need to apply for a new EIN (unless you have the hard copy from the original EIN). If you have any more specific questions about student organization bank accounts, funding, etc. Please feel free to consult our website resources.
