Two Budget Processes
The purpose of the ASUNM Spring and Fall Budget Processes are to endeavor to meet the financial needs of undergraduate chartered student organizations, service entities and governmental offices at the University of New Mexico.
Each process performs a separate function in the types of funding that are addressed. The guidelines are as follows:
Spring Budget Process

Spring Budget Hearings:
The Spring Budget request hearing schedule can be found here when it is ready. Dates and times of Budget Hearings and Deliberations will be determined by the ASUNM Finance Committee as needed.
Fall Budget Process
The Fall Budget Process will attempt to provide for: the basic operating expenses of groups that missed the preceding Spring Process, the basic operating expenses of groups whose request were zeroed out by the Finance Committee in the preceding Spring Process, and the basic operating expenses of new student organizations (who did not go through the Spring Budget process). If you received funding through the Spring Budget process, you shall not go through the Fall Budget Process. ASUNM will hold at least 2 budget workshops within the first 3 weeks of the fall semester to assist you with the process. Attendance at a workshop is mandatory and you will not receive a budget packet unless you attend one. Budgets requests will be due the 4th Wednesday of the semester (usually the 2nd week of September). Once requests have been received, your organization will be scheduled for a hearing. An undergraduate representative of your organization must attend to explain your budget to the committee. The Finance Committee will consider your request, more than likely make adjustments, and send it on to Full Senate for approval. Your organization does not have to have representation at Full Senate to defend your budget. Once the budget bill passes Full Senate, your budget will be available for use when the ASUNM President has signed the bill and your organization has completed a SGAO Spending Workshop.
