Please review COSO funding guidelines before submitting a proposal. If approved, visit the Treasurer's Corner  for information on how to access these funds.

Meeting Location: COSO plans to meet in-person this term, but may be able to accommodate some hybrid requests. Adjustments will be made as needed so please check your confirmation email before the meeting. 

Meeting Schedule: There will be NO COSO Meeting Wednesday, 2/9. Please plan accordingly. COSO does not meet during reading period, finals, or interim.

Events in EngagePlease submit your events in Engage, so that students can access a centralized event calendar.  Also, a reminder that in order to book space on campus using EMS (Dartmouth's reservation system), your organization must have at least TWO current students with the position of 'EMS Contact' on your roster.  These people may hold this position in addition to any others held within your org, please reach out to us for questions on updating your roster.

Budget Reports: Your organization account will receive a weekly budget report via email that summarizes activity, income, expenses, and balance in your account each week. The report will only show transactions that have cleared through the financial system and actually posted to the account. There might be transactions that are pending or in process that are not included in the report. For instructions on reading the report, please click here. If you have additional questions, please blitz the Collis.Center.Treasurers.Corner@dartmouth.edu

Travel for Student Organizations: Please review the revised travel policy for COSO groups. ALL travel must be reported prior to departure via the travel contact form. Failure to do so could result in loss of group privileges and/or reimbursements for group travel expenses. There are also some new, additional requirements on the Global Dartmouth website

Duo: If you haven't already, you will need to set up DUO 2-Factor Authentication in order to log into your organization's email.  For more information on this, please visit:https://students.dartmouth.edu/coso/organizations/managing-organization/email-duo
