The Financial Systems & Technology department is responsible for processing university financial transactions to ensure data integrity and proper transmission to the state as well as support for Stratus Financials.
Our department manages the applications that enable the campus to perform key financial operations, including Stratus Financials, R*STARS, Student Financials and the Payroll interface. We review and process campus journals, image financial documents and handle the transmission of financial data to Annapolis. We also provide support for Stratus Financials, and provide testing and assistance to employees implementing system upgrades and maintenance.
The Stratus Financials System provides online, up-to-the-minute access to critical financial and budgetary information. You can review the Chart of Accounts page for information on cost center or grant numbers, aliases, and Stratus account numbers. You can also visit the Reporting & Training Documents page for more information on Stratus functions, reporting, and the Stratus Journal Upload process.
