NEW! Notes About June Month-End Close. Finance has received questions from campus regarding system budget loads and year-end activities. In a normal month, the month-end close usually takes 5 days. June is different, because the University is closing both the month and the entire fiscal year. Final approvals must be received from OSBM for an official close, which is estimated to happen during the week of July 24th. Once year-end activities are complete, static pushed-out reports will be run. On July 1st, permanent budgets were moved to the new FAST ledgers. There are additional steps required to complete system budget loads. All activities are anticipated to conclude soon and a more detailed communication will be sent out once all processes are complete.
NEW! July Month-End Close Deadline: Validated campus journal entries and data collect batches (journal imports) should be received by Accounting Services by close of business on (5 p.m.) Monday, July 31.
Please remember that accounting will not receive the journal entries until the journal has been budget checked valid and has passed through all required approvals (including OSR, if necessary).
It is critical that journal imports with state funds are submitted on or before this date. Valid entries received past deadline, including valid entries pending departmental approval or with error status, will be deleted from the system.
Month-end close deadlines are continually updated on the Accounting Services webpage. Bookmark this page to see the latest info in between updates.
