Allocations are to be expended during the academic year for which they are awarded; they should be used or encumbered by the end of the fiscal year, June 30. 

Deans are authorized to carry forward 10% of their college/library’s General Fund professional development current-year allocation to the next fiscal year.

Please work with your departmental support staff to utilize these funds in compliance with the year-end fiscal schedule, as well as use the correct professional development DeptID.
