Year-End Reminders from the Business Office

Congratulations to our students, faculty, and staff on another academic year filled with accomplishments! June marks not only the end of our academic year, but also the end of our fiscal year on June 30. We would like to remind you of a few housekeeping items before you leave campus. 

  • We encourage all campus employees to make sure all College purchase orders, invoices, employee expense reimbursement requests, travel expense reports, travel advance receipts, and all deposits are submitted to the Business Office before you leave campus for the summer.
  • Year-end deposits must be submitted by 2:00 p.m. on June 30. The cashier will open at 10:00 a.m. on July 1 for the new fiscal year 2016-2017!
  • All vendor invoices, employee expense reimbursements and Visa statements for the month of June (or earlier months) must be submitted to Accounts Payable by noon on July 14 (or sooner!) to ensure they are posted to the appropriate fiscal year.
  • Year-end purchases should be scheduled for delivery well in advance of June 30th to ensure posting to the current fiscal year. Goods and services received or performed after July 1st must be recorded to the new fiscal year.
  • Reports for FY 2016 operating budgets will be ready for final review July 21. Submit journal entry requests for any adjustments to your account pertaining to FY 2016 by July 28.
  • Faculty Development Account (FDA) holders should review their budgets on The Hub for accuracy and send corrections to the Business Office by July 28.
