Journal Entries


Journal entries are used to transfer or adjust charges and credits posted from one cost center and account to another.

All journal entries must be submitted electronically through Workday. All back-up support for entries should be retained for future reference at the department and should not be sent to the Controller’s Office unless specifically requested. Support for journal entries will be requested from the Controller’s Office as needed but must be kept on file at the department level for at least 5 fiscal years.

Journal entries must be approved by a cost center manager of the department being charged. 



Journal entries should be submitted through Workday.  Visit the Workday Finance page for help with submitting a journal entry, or contact the Controller's Office for training.
