the  three  projects  selected  to  present  in  front  of  SGA  did  NOT  
follow  the  guidelines  set  fourth  in  this  document.  Their  appeal  
must  be  submitted  in  writing  48  hours  after  the  SGA  
presentation  to  the  SGA  Executive  Board,  Head  of  SDACA  and  
Dean  for  Students.    
o Once  a  formal  appeal  has  been  made,  all  three  (3)  projects  will  
be  reviewed.  If  (a)  project(s)  is  (are)  found  to  be  in  violation  of  
the  guidelines,  it  will  be  removed  from  the  selection  process.  
No  project  will  take  its  place.  If  all  projects  are  found  in  
violation  of  the  guidelines,  then  no  project  will  be  selected  and  
the  disbursement  of  opportunity  funds  will  not  take  place  in  
the  present  year.    
o After  selection  is  made  at  Organizational  Council  Meetings,  
students  can  only  appeal  for  a  re-­‐count  of  votes,  not  on  the  
projects  presented.  They  must  make  this  request  within  24
