The Budget Office provides budget planning, execution, and reporting for the institution’s funds that are used for instruction, support functions, student activities, and capital improvements projects. Specifically, the Office administers budgets for state funds (i.e., the General Fund), auxiliaries (e.g., Housing and Residence Life, Parking), and student fee funded operations (e.g., Student Union, Athletics). The Office also administers budgets for capital improvement projects and provides position budget management for all types of funds.
