They have designed a special t-shirt for this fundraiser and all of the sales will be donated to the American Heart Association. The online shopping cart will be open through today, Apr. 21.

ATTENTION BUDGET MANAGERS: Business and Finance is pleased to announce that Self-Service Budget Transfers will go live on Friday, May 1. You will be able to access the system through Finance Self-Service  (my.emich, Finance Operations tab, Finance Quick links, Budget Queries, Budget Transfer or Multiple Line Budget Transfer). Individual departments will have permissions to enter and approve online budget transfers within their General Fund organizations or within their Auxiliary fund units. The transfers will follow routing queues conceptually similar to our online requisition process and once approved and posted by the Budget Office, Banner will be updated. We anticipate these changes will make our processes more efficient. For example, with this campus-wide functionality in place, we will no longer be accepting expense transfers after July 1. There will be information training sessions on these changes between April 15 and April 30. To register for a session, please visit Training Sessions. For questions, please contact Doris Celian at 487-0324 or email dcelian@emich.edu.
