*PLEASE NOTE: In order for a journal entry to be included in the fiscal period as of the closing date, it must be approved, pass both edit checks (header status edit and budget checking edit where applicable), and be posted in PeopleSoft. Departments that are entering journal entries are responsible to review their journals the next day, after the overnight edit process has taken place, and ensure that the header status is “V” for “Valid”. If the journal entry involves research projects, three business days must be allowed for any budget errors to be corrected, in order for the journal entry to be posted by the closing date.
