An approved funding source is required for all tournaments/ competitions. The main funding sources for travel are Associated Students (AS) Tournament and Competition Funds and Triton Competition Funds (TCF), both of which are managed by the Student Life Business Office (SLBO). 

Tournament/Competition documents must be submitted no later than 14 days prior to the event date. Late submissions may be denied reimbursement.
