The Student Government Association's senate Council meeting had four new orders of business at its Monday, Nov. 17 meeting, all of which were carryover requests.
Richmond Gunter, SGA treasurer, said the carryover request comes from excess money organizations have on campus that they may not have had the chance to spend during the previous financial year.
"Basically, the carryover process is any excess money that groups did not have a chance to spend during the previous fiscal year that they have looked into the budget in the future and said we have specific areas of need where we could use the excess money in those areas," Gunter said.
The Center for Community Service was granted a carryover request of $2,848.09.
The Intercultural Programs received a total of $33,312.26, with $6,096.95 going toward the International Student Organization and $27,215.31 going toward the Black Student Organization.
Student Media was allowed a carryover request of $31,992.79, which will be divided among Auburn's student media outlets, which are The Auburn Circle, The Glomerata, Eagle Eye TV and WEGL Radio Station.
The final carryover request came from the Center for Leadership and Ethics in which the senate approved the request for $3,975.13.
Gunter said these organizations are responsible for using the money in a way that will benefit the Auburn students, even if it is money left over from the previous year.
"These different groups that are carrying it over are going to use that in a strategic way that will ultimately benefit students because they have specific purposes for that money," Gunter said.
Because of Thanksgiving break, SGA senate will resume Dec. 1 with new orders of business.
