Q. I turned in a Club Expenditure voucher a couple of weeks ago and I have not received a check. I checked my club mailbox, there was a Pink Form with my voucher and my paperwork attached. What is this?

A. A Pink Club Communication Form is a form used by the ASI Business Office to communicate with clubs. It is used when a club turns in a Club Expenditure Voucher without the supporting documentation. The appropriate box checked on the form indicates what information is needed. The Business Office may write in information to communicate with the club. The club should correct the paperwork and attach what is missing then return it to the Business Office.

Q. How can I check the status on my check?

A.The ASI Business Office has checks ready every Friday after 1pm. Checks can be picked up at the Student Union Information Desk. If your voucher was turned in on Monday before 5pm and there is no pink communication form in your club mailbox, the check will be ready for pick up the following Friday after 1pm. If it is not, you can Orgsync the ASI Business Office.

Q. When will my check be ready?

A. If a Club Voucher is turned in on Monday before 5pm, the check will be ready for pick up on the following Friday after 1pm at the Student Union Information Desk. Make sure to bring Student ID when picking up the check.

Q. How do I know when my check is ready to be picked up?

A. If you have an Orgsync account, you will receive a message from the ASI Business Office informing you that your check is ready. The ASI Business Office will also place the pink copy of the Expenditure voucher in your clubs mailbox. If the “Mail Check” box is checked, the check will be mailed to the Check Payee at the address provided on the voucher. We cannot mail checks to students who live on campus.

All Club vouchers that are not completed properly or do not have the proper backup will be returned to the Club’s mailbox located in the CSLIS Office. Please check your Club’s Mailbox weekly.
