The Commercial Accounts Receivable Office, within the Office of the Bursar, issues customer numbers to Student Association (SA) recognized organizations/groups. The customer number allows organizations to charge services on campus for their activities and events. Note: For your protection, the policy of this department is to NEVER give out your customer number or your organization's account information over the phone.

New for Fall 2015 semester: Student Involvement & Leadership Development has instituted a new management system for student organizations called Huskie Link.  All student organization forms, including Accounts Receivable Authorization forms, must be completed online at Huskie Link.  If you have not already submitted your organization’s forms, click here to get started.  Click on Campus Links to find all the organization registration forms.

Do this First!

Before your organization can obtain a customer number from this office, you must do the following:

  1. Current officer information must be entered and maintained within Huskie Link.
  2. Outstanding balances must be paid before any changes can occur on the customer account.
  3. Two officers from the organization are required to establish an AR account.  The organization must be approved by the SA Office and each officer must electronically submit an Accounts Receivable Authorization form and be approved before the organization can incur charges to their account.  The AR authorized officers must present their Photo IDs to departments when reserving rooms or services or inquiring about account information.


All charges billed through the Commercial Accounts Receivable Office must be paid by cash, check, money order, or online by credit card or e-check. If there exists any discrepancies in your billing, it is your responsibility to protest the charges. Payments can be made payable to Northern Illinois University and mailed to:
