The Accounts Receivable portion of the Accounts Receivable/Cash Receipts system records all financial transactions and adjustments relating to a student or customer account. Financial transactions including tuition charges, fee charges, financial aid credits, room and board charges, parking fines, payments, etc. For any account with an indebtedness, the system will calculate finance charges and produce a bill. The Cash Receipts portion of the Accounts Receivable/Cash Receipts system provides the means to centralize data entry for all University cash transactions. Cash transactions can be applied to an Accounts Receivable account (AR payment) or to a general ledger account (Non-AR payment). AR payments include expenditure fines, room, board, etc. Non-AR payments include expenditure reimbursements, revenue items, donations, bank deposits, etc. Both AR and CR generate accounting entries that feed the general ledger (FRS system).
