James Madison University uses PeopleSoft as its finance system. We have over 500+ users on campus that have diverse capabilities in the system. Our departmental users have the ability to review expenditures and print monthly summary and detail reports. Some users also have the ability to reconcile their Small Purchase Credit Card and/or cards issued to others in their department as well.


For those who need access to the Finance System in order to perform their job duties, an online IS Access Request must be submitted for approval. The employee, the employee's supervisor, or a 3rd party person can submit the request. The employee and their supervisor must approve the request before it is processed by the Finance Office. For more information, please visit the link below.

For SPCC Cardholders needing to add or make changes to the data associated with their Small Purchase Charge Card, a SPCC Information Form must be completed to provide the information needed to update the card. The Cardholder must sign the form. If the cardholder does not have signature authority for the department(s) added, then an authorized signer will need to sign as well. Please send this form to Accounting Technology, MSC 5705 or sherm2bm@jmu.edu. For more information, please visit the link below.

The Signature Authority reports list the names of people who currently have authority to approve IS Access requests and sign SPCC Information Forms for a Department ID. For all new department IDs, a Signature Authority Form will need to be completed and sent to Pam Crowe, MSC 5719 or crowepm@jmu.edu. For more information, please visit the link below.

To become a Finance System user you must complete a brief training session (Finance Overview - IT610 to run departmental reports and Finance Credit Card Recon - IT611 to reconcile charge cards). You can register for the training classes through MyMadison.
