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.


Oracle Training Module One: 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. Users will also learn how to forward a requisition to an approver for reservation and approval of funds. Users will be taught how to view summary screens, view reports, set up preferences and customize data. This class should be attended by anyone who places requisitions for their department. 

This session will also include a brief overview of navigating the Oracle program.

Seats in this session are reserved for those employees that currently have access to Oracle Purchasing responsibility, or that need to acquire it for their current position.  For those that are new to Oracle Purchasing, access to this function will not be granted until this session is successfully completed.

Prerequisite: None
