Request SAF Funds

Main page content

Any member of the campus community can request SAF funding per the UWT SAFC Bylaws.

The SAFC reviews funding three times each year, in the Autumn and Spring for Sepecial Allocations and annually during Autumn and Winter quarters for Annual Allocations. A detailed timeline will be provided here September 2020.

  • The Annual Budgeting Process begins in Winter quarter. This is the opportunity to seek funding to operate programs and services that serve UW Tacoma students. At the end of the Annual Budgeting Process, the Services Activities Fee Committee (SAFC) recommends to the chancellor which programs and services should receive SAF support during the next academic year. This is also when the SAFC makes recommendations for the amount of the SAF for the next academic year.

  • The 2021-2022 Annual Allocation proposal period is open December 4, 2020 - February 5, 2021.


  • The Special Allocations Process takes place during Fall and Spring quarters. This is an opportunity for SAF programs and services to ask for additional funding to pay for emergency expenditures they could not have anticipated when submitting their annual budget request. It is also the time when students, faculty, and staff can seek funding for capital expenses.

  • The 2020-2021 Autumn Special Allocation Proposal period has closed. The Spring Special Allocation Proposal period will be open April 9, 2021 - May 14, 2021.
