The Special Events Fund (SEF) was created to support educational and humanitarian activities that directly benefit students by providing opportunities to enhance their educational experience. The funds enable students and student organizations to become involved in campus programming and to enrich the UTPA community by allowing students to develop skills and share the unique interests of their organizations with the campus at large.
Please note that individual students who have direct deposit set-up for financial aid disbursement and/or student employment will be refunded electronically. To expedite reimbursement, please consider enrolling for direct deposit through ASSIST for financial aid or through Oracle for student employment.
Guidelines for Distribution of Special Events Funds
- Students should submit application at least two weeks in advance of the event.
