UAFR NACUBO Functions - Activity Lookup Table

The table provided in this document is meant to serve as a supplement to the in-depth information stored within the Overview of Banner Program Codes & NACUBO document. For full details and for more complete information, please reference that document. However, if you need to quickly look up a certain type of activity to see what the best NACUBO function fit might be, this activity lookup table provides a good place to start.

In order to use this table, simply scan the list of different activities within the first column, and see the recommended NACUBO function in the second column. You can also use the “control – f” functionality on your keyboard to bring up the search box, which would allow you to search on key words or terms.

As mentioned earlier, this table is simply a quick guide and does not include every scenario that you may encounter. For further details and examples, refer to the Overview of Banner Program Codes & NACUBO Functions document, or contact UAFR via the NACUBO Functions section of UAFR's Who to Ask list.

Thank you for your efforts in making sure your expenditures are classified to the proper NACUBO function! Good luck with your search, and let UAFR know if you have any further questions.
