Need Help?

Please Note: As with any system transition, data conversion issues do occur. While we have experienced a relatively small number of these they are actively being managed. We will reach out to you if any assistance is needed. The Kuali Financial System will continue to be used to close out the 2021 fiscal year according to the University Comptroller schedule and guidelines.

USC is adhering to the guidelines and taking precautions to halt the spread of the Coronavirus

Most of the Comptroller’s staff will be working remotely.  Please continue to reach out via email.  Thank you.

Onboard USC Project

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Onboard USC Project! This tool provides new functionality in Workday to allow managers of all staff and resource employees to initiate the onboarding process online. Additionally, this is an opportunity to engage with new hires and provide a welcoming experience.

With Workday Onboarding, new hires will be able to complete many of their tasks before they arrive for their first day (including setting up their USC Net ID, complete the I-9, launch training, etc.). This new process also requires hiring managers to initiate the Onboarding process for their new hire. This is a chance to connect with your employee prior to their first day on-site. Doing so will ensure your employees get connected to valuable information and that they are ready to work faster.

If you have any questions about the process, user guides can be found on the Workday Help site. For questions, please contact the project team at

Planning and Projection Tool

The Planning and Projections tool is a new online capability within the IBM Cognos TM1 software that supports the management of funds at USC through financial forecasting. This tool offers a financial projection modeling system upon which budget and planning scenario models can be built, providing visibility into available funding across fiscal years for the purposes of financial decision.
