How To Gain Access To Your Club's Financial Accounts

Access to your club’s main account and CSC account is overseen by the Student Organizations, Leadership, and Engagement (SOLE) Office.  To gain access, complete both of these steps

  1. Assign ‘Financial Signatory’ and ‘Treasurer’ roles in Engage, engage.mit.edu
  2. Email SOLE, sole-desk@mit.edu, and request access.  Include the person’s name, Kerberos ID, club name, and club account numbers

Rules For Spending Money

Types of Funding

There are 2 types of funding provided by the CSC: 1) Regular funding and 2) Nationals funding

  • Instructor salaries will be reimbursed to the team’s main account upon submission of proof of payment.
  • Please note that all CSC accounts will be cleared at the end of each academic year.
  • Any reimbursements submitted to Student Organizations, Leadership, and Engagement Office (SOLE) before August 14, 2020 will be counted toward FY2020 (last year); anything submitted after that will be counted toward FY2021 (next year).
