Budget Journals

Doing a budget journal should be a rare occasion, most chart strings are budgeted in NUPlans during the budgeting period each year (April – July). Outside of that there are only a few reasons that you should change your budget:

You are opening a new chart string and need to establish a budget.

You received unplanned revenue.

A new faculty member is starting.

The original budget was incorrect.
