SSAP FORMS (Application and Final Report)

  2. Label all receipts with the name of the project to which they are related.
  3. Keep copies of everything you submit.

All off-campus activities must respect the Off-Campus Student Travel and Activities Procedures.
The following additional measures also apply:

Off-Campus Student Travel and Activities Policy
Recognizing that increasing numbers of students are involved in off-campus activities, the College wishes to encourage those activities and ensure that they are conducted in the safest possible manner. To that end, the College has adopted an institutional policy that will regulate all college-sponsored off-campus activities involving students.

Off-Campus Student Travel and Activities Procedures
These Procedures and Guidelines are designed to assist in the planning and safe execution of off-campus activities. While these procedures provide requirements and parameters for a number of particular situations, it should be recognized that no set of procedures can address every possible contingency. The persons responsible for an activity should assess the proposed activity according to the applicable circumstances.

Note Only Dawson Faculty and Staff (on behalf of Dawson Students) are eligible to apply for SSAP funds. Please allow two weeks for processing.
