Budget and Financial Reports

Activity-level financial reports are available through InformSU, the university's online data warehouse. The system can be reached by navigating to MySU, in the website header, and then selecting InformSU.

Financial transactions originate from a wide variety of offices and sources across campus. Details on financial transactions and videos on working in InformSU financial reports are available below.

As the University has grown in size and complexity, a new 17 digit chart of accounts has been created to replace the 20-year-old 13 digit chart of accounts. While these changes will result in some additional complexity, they will provide greater flexibility moving forward as well as improved reporting capabilities and insights into how the university spends its budget dollars. The following downloadable tools, videos, and account coding explanations are designed to help improve understanding and make this transition easier.

 

Chart of Accounts Guide Chart of Accounts Translator

The Chart of Accounts Guide provides an introduction to

  • how the accounts are built,
  • new and commonly used object code descriptions, and
  • translation tools.  

For users that work with a variety of accounts regularly, this tool will help efficiently translate general ledger (GL) codes during the transition. As Seattle University continues to adopt more of the new chart of account's capabilities, it will not be sufficient to simply translate accounts because

  • some old accounts will be discontinued or consolidated,
  • many new accounts have been added, and
  • the new accounts are more complex to facilitate improved reporting.
