The initial step in setting up an account with the University is the preparation of an Application for Account Number form (1026) by the fiscal agent and receiving appropriate vice presidential approval. This form instruction explains the preparation of the application.

The application is a two part form set. The form may be obtained from the Controller's Office on a no cost basis.
