Oracle Financial Applications

Oracle is the University's financial and human resource platform for all transactions and databases. This series of three classes is very important to new faculty and staff who have budget development/operations and/or purchasing responsibility.

The following classes are designed for new Oracle users or those who need a refresher course for basic applications in the general ledger and purchasing.  Seats in these sessions are limited to those who use Oracle within their current position.

Sessions: 

Module I: Purchasing Requisitions

In this class, users are introduced to the Oracle applications and they will learn how to "navigate" through the various forms and functions. In addition, users will become familiar with basic Oracle terminology, selecting a responsibility, menus, and keyboard short cuts. Once users understand the basics of navigation, they will learn how to place a requisition for items and services purchased from outside suppliers.

Module II: General Ledger/Journal Entry Process

Basic Oracle navigation concepts will be reviewed in this class including Oracle terminology, forms, functions, menus and keyboard short cuts. Then users will learn how to create on-line journal batches, prepare new journal entries, check and reserve funds, and find and review existing journal entries. Everyone who prepares journal entries to make account number corrections or prepares interdepartmental chargebacks should attend this class.

Module III: General Ledger/Report & Inquiry

Basic Oracle navigation concepts will be reviewed in this class including Oracle terminology, forms, functions, menus and keyboard short cuts. Then users will learn how to perform on-line account inquires and drill down to transaction detail. Then they will learn how to request and print selected standard Oracle & custom (FSG) reports. This class was designed for employees who reconcile department and project statements.
