Controller's Office

Monthly Close

The College operates on a fiscal year that begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. For accounting purposes, the Controller's Office generally closes each month within the first week of the month that follows.

Once a month is "closed", we do not allow any more entries to be posted. This allows us to prepare financial reports that are not subject to change.

A reminder is sent to all users as the month end approaches indicating processing deadlines for journal entries, invoices and deposits. Click below to view the current schedule.

Monthly Closing Deadlines FY 2014-2015

Year End

June is the last month in our fiscal year. It is critical that we capture all financial activity that has taken place for the fiscal year before closing the month of June. Several announcements are made to the campus community as the year end approaches. We may contact you about items you have pending to determine the proper accounting treatment. 

2014 Year End Accounting Memo


In July and August, we are working to close the fiscal year. In addition, the College's external auditors arrive to audit the financial statements. We may need to request information from your department to facilitate the audit.
