Student Government: Business and Accounting Office
Remember: Under no circumstances may the University's tax exempt number be used by a Registered Student Organization (RSO), or club.
About Our Office
The Business and Accounting Office is housed within Student Government (SG). We act as the "gateway" to the Activity and Service (A&S) Fee Fund, which is a part 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 five staff members. Three 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:
