KUSSI is excited to announce the launch of the finance module in our Engage platform. This will allow student organizations the capability to submit a Purchase Request and Funding Request (previously called Check Request) online through Engage. This platform will also allow you to view your account balances, along with all previous transactions. KUSSI will no longer accept paper requests, everything will need to be done through the Engage finance module. You can begin to utilize this functionality Wednesday, July 1, for the 2020-2021 academic year. An email was sent to all organizations with more information. Email kussi@kutztown.edu if you have any questions.
