Month of April Closing Delayed | Month of May Fund Balances

Please note that due to the extended University year end period, the month of April will not be closing according to the usual month end schedule. April 2017 is scheduled to be closed on May 30th. This means that financial statements for April are still not available. An email notification will be sent when the financial statements are ready to be picked up in Minerva.  Until April is closed, please be mindful that May fund balances may not include the new fiscal year’s budgets nor the budget carry forwards.
