Elections

For information on elections of student representatives within programs, see http://cunydsc.org/student-elections-programs.

Financial Services

Official Program Student Associations have access to DSC financial services through the Co-Chair for Business. Deposits are credited to the program’s DSC program allocation under the control of the DSC Program Representative(s) for that program. Additional monies remaining at the end of the fiscal year (not regular program allocation monies) can be carried forward upon request by the end of the spring semester. For more information about financial procedures, see Bylaw 6.1.d.

E-mail

PSAs can have official Graduate Center e-mail accounts to conduct PSA business. These accounts would be accessible to current student leaders of the PSA. To create such an account or to change who can access the account, please contact the Co-Chair for Student Affairs.

In order to access these accounts, you must use GC computers.
