Cost Transfers

Sometimes there is a need to move costs after they post in the accounting system. Campus policy defines cost transfers as a transfer of expenses:

  • Between two sponsored projects
  • From a non-sponsored fund to a sponsored project
  • From a sponsored project to a non-sponsored fund

For a Non-Payroll Cost Transfer use this form: Non-Payroll Cost Transfer.

Transfers of salary/effort are handled though Human Resources or the Graduate school and reviewed by the Controller’s Office when sponsored grants are involved.
