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:
