The Student Government Association (SGA) provides a number of services for Georgia State University students. See the items below for more information on these services.

The Student Government Association (SGA) believes student organizations are major contributors to the healthy presence of students on campus. The purpose of the co-sponsorship process on the Atlanta campus is to allow SGA to support registered student organizations through the funding of up to $1,000 for events that promote cultural awareness, educational development and community interaction for the students of Georgia State University. Events must be co-sponsored by at least two Atlanta campus registered student organizations (not including SGA) to be eligible for funding. Request forms must be completed in their entirety using the Panther Involvement Network. Registered student organizations must obtain their advisor's approval before requests can be processed.

To allow adequate time for the SGA Student Engagement Committee review, as well as the adequate promotion of the event, all applications for event funding must be submitted at least four weeks prior to the event date in order to be considered. Late submissions and emailed or faxed requests will not be considered.

Co-sponsorships will be granted on adherence to the purpose of co-sponsorship program (i.e., to promote cultural awareness, educational development and community interaction for the students of Georgia State University).

The following events will not be eligible for co-sponsorship through SGA:

  • Events that are not open to the entire student body and/or charge admission.
  • Events involving services that other offices and/or departments already provide to the student body.
  • Events held off-campus.
  • Events involving the service or sale of alcohol and/or illegal substances.
  • Conference attendance.

SGA will not be able to fund travel (i.e., bus, train, airfare) or any items outside of the following departments:

  • Catering (PantherDining)
  • University Bookstore
  • PawPrints (University Printing Services)
  • Computer Operations Center (Library South)
  • GSUPD (Security Personnel)
  • Other university services which can be paid with a speedtype

Providing ample details of the event’s expenses greatly enhances the organization’s chances of being approved. An itemized list should be included with the co-sponsorship application. The SGA Student Engagement Committee chair will notify organizations that their application was received within two to five business days of its receipt. The organization will be notified via email from the SGA Student Engagement Committee chair within two weeks acknowledging approval or denial of the request.

Each SGA office offers free copying, and scanning services to individual students and registered student organizations. Visit the SGA office on your campus for the quantities available and to confirm the availability of faxing.
PantherCash discounts are available to students on all of Georgia State University’s campuses. For more information, refer to PantherCard.

The Student Government Association (SGA) encourages all students to take advantage of this money-saving opportunity!

Individuals can also download the “GA SOS” app, to access integrated electronic platforms that the Secretary of State’s office has created over the last several years such as Online Voter Registration (OLVR), My Voter Page (MVP), and the Corporations Division’s eCorp system. Users can access their essential voter information, including a sample ballot, and also manage corporate registrations, locate a certificate of existence, or conduct a business search.
