Back by Popular Demand! Year-End Dates and Spring Finance What’s Up?

Last October, the Finance Service Group surveyed the campus about customer service and 73% of the respondents requested the reinstatement of Year End cut-off dates. We agree!

Year End cut-off dates make clear both your responsibilities and ours as we approach the end of the fiscal year.  You help to ensure that all transactions occur and are recorded in the proper fiscal year, and we process those transactions when submitted timely to meet the final posting date on June 30th.

The 2017-18 Year End cut-off dates can be found on the Finance website. Please reach out to the departments or persons indicated if you have any questions, or contact FinanceConnect at or 4-1558 .

Save the Date!

We will also be available to answer questions at our Spring 2018 What’s Up? event on April 27th  (9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. in MLK 225).

Here’s to a successful fiscal close!

Save the Date – SJSU Budget Forum

As announced in President Papazian’s March blog, an SJSU Budget Forum is planned for 11 a.m. to noon on April 19 in King 225/229. Vice President for Administration and Finance Charlie Faas will describe our plans for the coming year. Provost Andy Feinstein and the President will be available to answer questions.

Governor Brown’s budget proposal provides less to the California State University system than expected. Many CSU leaders including the President are doing all we can to explain our needs to legislators. Meanwhile, we will plan thoughtfully, with a firm commitment to our priorities, including instruction, student support, campus safety, and the Strategic Plan.

Please forward this message to staff or faculty you feel should be notified.
