    The Web Based Accounting module is available at Web Based Accounting.

    The Web Based Accounting system allows users the ability to view cost center balances, transactions and budget transfers. The responsible person listed on a cost center has access to view these queries. In addition, the responsible person of the cost center can notify Karen Lester via email to authorize viewing rights for additional users to their cost center. The user must have a StarID to be able to add this security access and login to Web Based Accounting.

    You will need to utilize your StarID to access this system. Your StarID username and password is the same as your E-timesheet login information. If you do not have a StarID, follow the link below to activate your StarID account.

    Activating Your StarID

    Follow this link to the Accounting Department User Documentation and Training Materials. Begin by reviewing the videos in the section labeled Training. This will give you an overview of logging in along with navigation tips and tricks unique to this web application.

    Department User Queries

    The online queries provide up-to-date information on account balances, open commitments, and transaction details needed to review a cost center. The MnSCU System Office has stated that their intent in designing the web accounting application was that a hard copy report would not necessarily be needed. Some users prefer to view their balances and transactions online, or perhaps utilize the download in Microsoft Excel function when performing a more detailed analysis of individual transactions. However, accounting reports of this same information are available and can be run for viewing or printing. The MnSCU System Office has written documentation on both Report Search & Create and Report Status.
