40002 Student Services Administration NACUBO 452.151 Student Services Administration. This subcategory includes expenses for organized administrative activities that provide assistance and support (excluding academic support) to the needs and interests of students. This subcategory includes only administrative activities that support more than one subcategory of student activities and/or that provide central administrative services related to the various student service activities. In particular, this subcategory includes services provided for particular types of students (for example, minority students, veterans, and handicapped students). Excluded from this subcategory are activities of the institution?s chief administrative officer for student affairs, whose activities are institution wide and therefore should be classified as institutional support.
40000 Student Services & Activities NACUBO 452.15 Student Services. The student services category includes expenses incurred for offices of admissions and the registrar and activities with the primary purpose of contributing to students? emotional and physical well-being and intellectual, cultural, and social development outside the context of the formal instruction program. It includes expenses for student activities, cultural events, student newspapers, intramural athletics, student organizations, intercollegiate athletics (if the program is not operated as an essentially self-supporting activity), counseling and career guidance (excluding informal academic counseling by the faculty), student aid administration, and student health service (if not operated as an essentially self-supporting activity). In recent years, some institutions have created an office of enrollment management; expenses for such an office are best categorized in student services. The student services category includes the following subcategories:
40001 Student Services No definition available

82001 Scholarships & Fellowships NACUBO 452.17 Scholarships and Fellowships. ?443 of this manual covers scholarship allowances. Under the AICPA NPO guide, most student awards are now accounted for as either scholarship allowances or agency transactions. Student awards, made from contributed funds or grant funds, that are under the control of the institution (the institution decides who gets the award) and result in allowances in tuition and fees or auxiliary enterprise charges are treated as reductions of tuition or auxiliary enterprise revenue. Student awards from grant funds (e.g., Pell grants) that are made to specific students (not determined by the institution) are considered agency transactions and do not result in either revenues or expenses.

In other cases, student awards are made in exchange for services provided to the institution, such as graduate and teaching assistantships and student work-study programs. In those cases, expenses are recorded in the function in which the student provides the service. For example, a tuition remission to a graduate teaching assistant in the biology department would be charged to instruction. However, remission of tuition or fees granted because of faculty or staff status, or family relationship of students to faculty or staff, should be recorded as staff benefits expenses in the appropriate functional expense category.

NACUBO?s Advisory Report 97-1 issued by the APC provides greater detail on accounting for scholarships and fellowships and examples on applying the standards. Institutions, in applying this guidance on allocating financial aid between revenue discounts and expenses, generally initially record all aid as an expense and then determine the amount of aid that should be reported as a reduction of revenues in their general purpose financial statements. Accordingly, it is still advisable to maintain expense accounts for aid granted.

This category includes the following subcategories:

Subject to these conditions, the category includes expenses for individual and/or project research as well as that of institutes and research centers. This category does not include all sponsored programs nor is it necessarily limited to sponsored research, since internally supported research programs, if separately budgeted, would be included in this category. Expenses for departmental research that are separately budgeted are included in this category. However, the research category does not include expenses for departmental research that are not separately budgeted. Such expenses are included in the instructional category.

These expenses include items such as janitorial and utility services; repairs and ordinary or normal alterations of buildings, furniture, and equipment; care of grounds; maintenance and operation of buildings and other plant facilities; security; earthquake and disaster preparedness; safety; hazardous waste disposal; property, liability and all other insurance relating to property; space and capital leasing; facility planning and management; and central receiving.
