University Financial Systems Information for Academic Graduate Students

UC Davis has three separate accounting systems: the Banner Student Information System (SIS), the Payroll System (PPS), and the Kuali Financial System (KFS).  Each of these three financial systems is used to deliver student support to academic graduate students.

The most common types of financial transactions applicable to academic graduate students are:
