Journal Entry Tool (JET)

What is Jet

The Journal Entry Tool (JET) is an application that allows campus users to prepare and upload journal entries to the General Ledger and Grants modules using an Excel spreadsheet.

The tool utilizes a standard JET Excel template that is populated with the lines for the journal entry by any individual (Preparer) on campus. The journal can include lines to be posted to both the GL and the Grants module. If the preparer is also a JET Processor, they can continue to process their journal entry. If the preparer does not have JET access, they must submit their spreadsheet to a JET Processor in their department/planning unit who can process the file in JET.
