Instructions for the 131 Profit Template

The template is filled out as part of the annual Budget Build process in L&S. L&S Departments/programs with 131 profit accounts need to complete this budget build document. 131 profit accounts include profit from Summer Term and 131 programs (professional masters, professional certificates, and VISP).

The budget build template calculates estimates for revenue and planned expenses.
