NEW! April GSHIP Premium Files: The April GSHIP premium file has been uploaded into ConnectCarolina and departments now have access to update allocations. For more information, see the April 17 memo.
NEW! Year-End Deadlines: Remember that there is not one month-end close date for June, but rather there are a series of month-and year-end close dates. Information concerning the year-end procedures and dates that documentation must be received for payment in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2018 will be updated under the Fiscal Year-End 2018 Resources found on the Month-End and Year-End Resources page in the featured resources section of ccinfo.unc.edu.
NEW! It’s Time to Do the 2-Step! If you use any part of ConnectCarolina except SelfService, then starting May 23, you’ll be required to use 2-Step/Duo access to Connect Carolina. That means if you enter grades, submit ePARs, conduct performance evaluations, buy from the vendor catalogues or any other transaction beyond those on the SelfService menu, you’ll need to verify with 2-Step/Duo to get into ConnectCarolina. For more information, see the May ConnectCarolina newsletter.
