On the left is a picture of Ell Student Center circa 1983, when the Student Activity Fee was created. A lot has changed at Northeastern since then, and it's time for the Student Activity Fee (SAF) to reflect those changes. In order to respond to the current needs of campus life and provide a sustainable infrastructure for the future, the Finance Board has overhauled the budget system for Fiscal Year 2020. 

We sought to create a system that would support a vibrant campus and allow students to explore enriching extracurricular activities. The new system will ensure responsible, sustainable, and efficient allocation of the SAF.​​


The Finance Board is committed to helping you and your group adapt to the changes. This website houses resources for learning about the new budget system, but it is just one tool available to you. Feel free to reach out to ask questions, give feedback, or schedule a meeting.
