Student Organization Resource Fee

The Student Organization Resource Fee (SORF) was established in 1978 to support programs and activities of Registered Organizations.

Student Organization Resource Fee is a mandatory $5.50 fee collected each semester from all UIUC students.

The fee money is available for allocation to Registered Student Organizations that apply for funding from SORF. Fundable categories include contractual services including transportation and lodging expenses, film, equipment, rentals (facility, equipment, services) and publications/communications.

SORF also provides financial support to offset the cost of off-campus travel for educational, competitive, performance, and service experiences that are relevant to the organization's mission.

A funding board comprised of elected students and appointed staff is responsible for allocating money generated from SORF fees to Registered Student Organizations.
