Large and complex events that involve signficant resources, multiple and/or large venues, off-campus fundraising and an audience that includes youth and/or members of the Bay Area commity are consider major events and require specific planning lead time. For these events, an event request must be submitted with accurate and complete information no later than the deadline as follows.  Please know that these are the minimum deadlines; often additional time is needed depending on how much funding a group has in its account, the time of the year and the completeness of a group's event plan. 

Additionally, student organizations can expect the possiblity of event cancellation if the event requests are not submitted by the deadline, are not sufficiently organized and have failed to follow other university policies.  Events that involve large numbers of people, are complicated and costly, involve youth and significant health and safety concerns require close oversight and are most likely subject to cancellation.
