GPSG Operational Funding

NOTE: GPSG is funded by your Student Activity Fees. As a result, these funds are used to fund student activities that will benefit graduate students and the greater UNC Charlotte community.


Occasionally, materials do get lost in transit. Unfortunately, GPSG is unable to reimburse any costs for which we do not have copies of the appropriate forms and receipts. Keeping extra copies is for your own protection.

This money can only be accessed by Graduate Student Organizations (GSO) which hold a valid charter GPSG for the current academic year.
