University Accounts

The Administrative Information System (AIS) is the official accounting system used by Southern Illinois University.

The University receives funding from various sources, most of which is specified for certain types of expenditures. To enable the University to monitor and report on the activity of the funds, resources are classified for accounting and reporting purposes into funds according to specified activities or objectives.

An account is defined as a functional unit established for a specific purpose, and each account is assigned an AIS Budget Purpose. The table shows the account types, funding source, and Accountant responsible for any questions regarding the specific accounts.
