Stipend Management System

The Stipend Management Application (SMA) is used to create, monitor and approve stipends that are authorized at the departmental level and to submit for payment the monthly amounts necessary to fulfill the university’s commitment toward these students. SMA provides:

  • An automated workflow to ensure that stipend payments are approved by the correct individuals
  • A mechanism for restricting the creation and approval of stipends that do not follow the appropriate approval path
  • Departments the ability to make changes to existing stipends online
  • Departments the ability to approve and release payments monthly prior to the due date
