Important Information Regarding Registration
In an effort to improve upon the SABO Account Registration process, we will now be requiring advisors to take a more active role in the registration process. This is beneficial because advisors will only be required to fill out the new OrgSync form one time, rather than completing and signing the SABO Account Registration form each semester. Additionally, this change will provide advisors with access to the Banner Finance System, allowing them access to their organization’s budget account at any time. This change will also assist the office in their efforts to “go green” by cutting down on paper statements.
To access the OrgSync form, you will need to complete the following steps:
1. Click on the following link: https://orgsync.com/join/30932/student-activities-business-office.
2. If you are already logged into OrgSync, you will be directed to join the SABO portal. If you have not previously logged in, you will be asked to log in to the Northeastern Community and enter your myNEU credentials before you are prompted to join the portal. If you are a first time OrgSync user, upon entering your myNEU credentials, you will be directed to create your OrgSync profile before joining the portal.
3. On the left-hand menu, click on “Forms.” Find the “SABO Advisor Banner Access Form” (pinned to the top of the list) and click the gray “Fill Out” button on the right side of the page.
4. Once you have completed the form, you will be able to print a PDF copy. Please physically sign it and either scan and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax it to 617.373.4375, or bring it to the Student Activities Business Office in 434J CSC.
This form must be printed, signed, and turned in as soon as possible in order for the organization(s) you advise to remain fiscally active. If you are an advisor for multiple organizations, you will need to submit a form for each organization.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we improve upon this process. We know that this means an extra step for you this semester, but it will help to save time and give you full access to view your accounts on Banner in the future!
Advisors or students with questions or concerns about this new process should reach out to Jeffrey Jean-Francois in the Student Activities Business Office. He can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at 617-373-8605.
BANNER TRAINING SESSIONS
The Procurement office will be conducting special Banner training sessions for advisors throughoutout the Fall semester. Training sessions will be announced during the month of September.
