Annual Requirements to Maintain Seminole Club Status

 

Event Requirements:

1. Participate in at least one event annually that is non-athletic in nature (i.e. host a networking night, family based event, academic based event, etc.)

2. Participate in at least one event annually that is Athletic in nature (i.e. host a Kickoff Party or Game Watching Party)

Financial Requirements:

Seminole Clubs must submit the following financial information twice annually online on dates provided by Seminole Club staff in January and July:

  • All Bank statements.
  • Categorize all transactions in QuickBooks online.
  • Signed or emailed Financial Attestation Report
  • Provide club account login information to Seminole Clubs financial specialist.

How is a Seminole Club stipend amount determined?

  • The amount of alumni living in a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) determines the amount of a Seminole Club stipend. Stipends cannot be increased by request.

Do Seminole Chapters receive stipend assistance?

  • No, Seminole Chapters do not have the same requirements as Seminole Clubs and therefore do not receive direct stipend support.

What are the requirements to have our Seminole Club expenses reimbursed for our expenses from our stipend?

  • Expenditures must be in support of an event or activity that was open to or benefited all Seminole alumni in the area. Expenses that were made that only impacted a select group or individual will not be reimbursed.
  • Membership fees or contributions to other organizations will not be reimbursed.
  • All receipts must be submitted in your Stipend Reimbursement request with the specific amount being requested. Receipts total must match request amount.
