NEW BANNER CHART OF ACCOUNTS EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2018
The Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) have moved to a common chart of accounts. Creating a common method of recording financial transactions and balances for the System Office, Community Colleges, and State Universities required creating a new system of coding. That means that all of the account numbers you use to check budgets, charge expenses, deposit revenues, create a purchase request, reconcile your p-card, etc., changed effective Sunday, July 1, 2018. While this is a change for all the financial managers at all of the campuses across the state, it brings with it the very big benefit of greater consistency in financial practices and support for centralized financial reporting.
To simplify expense management for Southern, we have taken advantage of this time of change to introduce the use of an Index Code, instead of asking each of you to learn a new, long, accounting string (fund – organization – program). This means that instead of having a new accounting structure for your departments, you will be able to simply use a 6 digit, alphanumeric code. These simplified indexes are for transactions that are effective on or after Sunday, July 1, 2018.
The crosswalk between the old accounting strings and the new indexes has been sent to Organization Financial Managers. Additionally, an online application is available to query an old Organization Code and find out the new Index Code and related fund, organization, and program.

Two group Q&A sessions will be held about the new chart of accounts and indexes:
Any questions about the new chart of accounts may be directed to Loren Loomis Hubbell, University Controller at extension 25722 or firstname.lastname@example.org
