The purpose of the Student Activity Fee (SAF) is to provide financial support for student organizations that are related to the educational purpose of the University of Virginia. As a mandatory student fee, the monies collected by the University for funding student activities are public funds that must be administered in a manner consistent with the educational purpose of the University as well as with state and federal law.
The SAF Guidelines have been developed as a comprehensive guide to assist student groups that receive money from the Student Activity Fee. This guide must be read before your group submits a budget applying for SAF funds. This is where you will find information on what is fundable and not fundable along with the basic distinctions among types of funding. Download the SAF Guidelines
