VENDOR SALES / SOLICITATION POLICY

The College feels that student organizations should be provided with opportunities to raise their own program funds through fundraising activities.

All requests must be submitted at least three weeks prior to the date of the proposed sale/solicitation. All dates are subject to availability.
