Financial Services


International Finance participates in the university’s budgeting process. International Finance works with various programs/campuses on the budgeting process as each process is unique to each program/campus based on the agreement for each program. Once the budget model is approved, the budget is submitted to the sponsoring organization for final approval.

Budgets and forecasts are uploaded to Oracle for the various international programs in accordance with the Budget Office deadlines.
