Top Issues

  • NEW! November Month-End Close Deadline:  Validated campus journal entries and data collect batches (journal imports) should be received by Accounting Services by close of business Monday, Nov. 30. It is critical that journal imports with state funds are submitted on or before this date.
  • NEW! Finance Central Links: Some users may have noticed that effective Nov. 4 at 5 p.m., all links on Finance Central were removed except the UNC-Account Request, Finan$eer, and ePrint. Most of these linked tools have moved into ConnectCarolina, and the links for the systems that are staying, such as Web Travel, are now available from ConnectCarolina.  For more information, go to the legacy systems page on the website.
  • NEW! Getting Access to the Finance Data Warehouse: The Finance Legacy Data Warehouse is in InfoPorte. To see if you have access, click the Legacy Accounts button in the top, right corner of InfoPorte and then look for a Legacy Warehouse tab.  If you don’t have it, you can work with your InfoPorte Administrator to get it.  If your InfoPorte Administrator has questions, they should contact the Help Desk.  Your administrator can follow these steps to give you access:
