    About Our Office

    The Business and Accounting Office is housed within Student Government. We act as the "gateway" to the Activity and Service (A&S) Fee Fund, which is a part of of the tuition that UNF students pay that supports student activities and services. While managed by Student Government, the A&S Fee is allocated to multiple offices within Student Government, as well as the Student Union and Recreation and Wellness. 

     

    Our Office is comprised of four staff members, each of whom oversees multiple budgeted indexes. If you ever have any questions about a specific budgeted index, see the index assignments below on who best to contact:

    Student Funding

    Student Government offers a variety of funding opportunities to the student body through the Legislative Branch, Club Alliance, and our Scholarships.

     

    Special Requests are meant to fund special events and services or projects for students. Any RSO or A&S Fee funded department or entity may request this type of funding. All special requests are first approved by the B&A Committee, and then the student Senate, and then signed by the SG President as approved legislation. To do request these funds, fill out the Special Request form completely and accurately, attach all quotes and backup documentation, then submit to the SG Rotunda (Student Union East, room 3300) at least six (6) days before the next Budget & Allocations (B&A) Committee meeting. If your request requires a contract, you must submit the paperwork seven (7) weeks prior to the event in order to accommodate the standard University contract process.

     

    Travel Requests are meant to fund student travel where the student traveler(s) is representing UNF. This can include competitions, conferences, out-of-town meetings, seminars, workshops, etc. Individual students may request up to $500 per request, and can only receive $500 in funding per fiscal year. RSOs can request up to $1,000 per request for group travel, and can only receive $2,000 in funding per fiscal year. All travel requests are approved by the B&A Committee and then signed by the SG President as approved legislation. To request travel funding, fill out the Travel Request form completely and accurately, attach all quotes and backup documentation, then submit to the SG Rotunda at least five weeks before the event or travel date.

     

    Club Funding can be requested from Club Alliance through the Grant Request process. In order to submit a grant request, your RSO must be in both good standing and funding eligible through Club Alliance. For more on the Grant Request process, see the Club Funding page.

     

    SG Scholarships are available at the beginning of each Fall semester and are typically split in half: half of the award is granted in the Fall and the other half in the Spring. SG provides Competitive scholarships, which are awarded by our Scholarship Committee, and Decentralized scholarships, which are awarded by different partnering departments. While award amounts vary, every student who applies will receive a letter over the Thanksgiving Break announcing if they have been awarded a scholarship. Check out our Scholarship page for more information on the different awards we offer, instructions on how to apply, and announcements for when the 2018-2019 Scholarship applications will become available.
