Graduate Aid FY2021-22 Annual Budget Process

Dear GFPS Users,

Hope this message finds everyone well and healthy!

We again look forward to working with each of you during this year’s budgeting process. We understand there are still a lot of uncertainties that would impact yields, students deferring admission, and summer funding for next budget year. The GFPS team will work diligently to provide guidelines and assistance as information made available to us.

This year, all Department balanced FY2021-22 budgets will be due to the Dean’s Office by Friday, May 28th.

By the budget due date, please submit:

  • A balanced FY2021-22 Final Annual Budget via GFPS
  • A brief assessment write-up of this budget cycle’s admit yield, environmental changes, and/or new concerns. Please send the executive summary to your Finance Liaison and me.  

Please work with your Finance Liaison, Dan and me to resolve any budget issues and discrepancies. If you need a refresher training on GFPS modules, please explore the new online GFPS Training Course in Canvas (click the “SUNet Login” button to access the training). Please let me know if you cannot access the Canvas site.

Please feel free to contact us for any questions and concerns.  Questions and requests can also be sent to the GFPS Support Team by submitting a GFPS ServiceNow ticket.

Thanks and we look forward to a very successful budget cycle!


Elsie Phillips
