Office of Finance
At its core, the purpose of the Finance Commission is to safeguard the student activity fee.
Some methods we have to ensure that the student activity fee is allocated responsibly includes: our annual budgeting process for student organizations and our special project fund to cover unique events that can benefit the NDSU community as a whole.
The Executive Commissioner of Finance is charged with overseeing and distributing the $3.8 million student activity fee to various departments and student organizations in collaboration with the Assistant Executive Commissioner of Finance and the Finance Commission. The Executive Commissioner of Finance chairs the Finance Commission and Finance Advisory Board. He/she also serves as a member on the Student Fee Advisory Board and Great Rides Bikeshare board of directors.
The Assistant Executive Commissioner of Finance's main responsibility is to work with Tier II student organizations for their funding questions, requests and reimbursement. The Assistant Executive Commissioner of Finance serves as secretary of both the Finance Commission and Finance Advisory Board and relays the minutes and documents to senators.
