CORES & COPS Funding Information

CORES funding is housed in OCAT and managed through a checks and balance system among the CORES Treasurers, CORES Advisors, OCAT’s Budget Manager and the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Services. All funding expenditures strictly follow MSU’s Manual of Business Procedures.

As the umbrella group for many affiliated organizations, CORES groups allocate a portion of their budget to support their affiliates and other groups involved in planning collaborative events that support their communities.

CORES groups can also request funding through the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) Student Allocations Board. For more information on this process, visit CORES & COPS Funding.

Residence Halls Association (RHA) also provides funding opportunities for CORES groups. Visit RHA Funding Opportunities.
