Student Financial Commitments Reports
These reports provide a complete picture of projected student financial support (e.g., fellowships, benefits and GSA tuition waivers ) across multiple years that can be run by school/college, department, and funding source. The report data ranges from high-level aggregate amounts to the reconciliation details for each student and funding source.
The reports provide:
Financial Commitments by Department
This report shows cost estimates by funding category, along with a total expenditure projection and total actual expenses to date.
The drilldown feature allows staff to evaluate the detail supporting those totals at the year, term, student, and journal/ChartField string level.
Financial Commitments By School
This summary report shows aggregate cost estimates by funding category.
The drilldown feature allows staff to evaluate the detail supporting those totals at the term, Department ID, student, and journal/ChartField string level.
Financial Commitments by Funding Source
This summary report shows aggregates of projected available funds (i.e., budget), total expenditures, total actual expenses-to-date, and the differences between the projections and actuals.
The information is listed separately for each commit year selected.
For more detailed information about these reports, including an explanation of the business reasons for the creation of the reports, read the full documentation on My LINC.
