The upgrade of the Kuali Financial System (KFS) is scheduled for November 2, 2019

CSU Campus Community:


I would like to inform you that the much anticipated upgrade of the Kuali Financial System (KFS) is scheduled for November 2, 2019.  This will upgrade our current on-premise KFS from version 6.x to version 7.x.  It is a considerable user interface change for our campus and if you have not had the opportunity to see the new environment through any of the training that has been available through TILT then please arrange to do so at your earliest convenience.  With this change there are a few issues that we know will exist as we move to production on November 4, 2019.  Please note these issues below for future reference.


  • Issue 1: Printing from Internet Explorer/Edge does not work consistently.  Kuali Inc. knows about this and there is not currently a fix planned.  The best alternative if you are using IE or Edge is to use the export to Excel option for printing or to switch to Mozilla Firefox or Chrome as your preferred browser for Kuali Financials.


  • Issue 2: Budget Construction will not be available until January 2020.  A notification will be sent out once Budget Construction is available for use.


In addition, the KFS  and Kuali Research system will be unavailable after Friday, November 1, 2019 at 7:00 PM.  All systems will then be shut down and unavailable for access until November 4, 2019 at 7:45 AM.  If the system becomes available before 11/4/19 a notification will be sent and posted on the IS Website.


You should delete any existing bookmarks for KFS after you complete your work on 11/1/19.  If you try to access KFS with an existing bookmark you will get an error on the KFS home page (see below), however the menu system on the left will still work as expected.  It would be best if you go to the AAR page and bookmark the KFS system after the upgrade to avoid the display of the below string.



Please post or forward this email to any that may need to have this information.  Also, you can go to to access the most up to date information about this upgrade.
