    You can access Kuali Financial System (KFS) training in Blackboard. You can even self-enroll by login into the Blackboard system and then click the button on the KFS training page.

    How does the CRA even work?

    The Computing Resource Application (CRA) is a basic form that has a variety of options to created add-on access to your default account. When you have determined you need additional access here is the basic workflow:

    1. Open the CRA Form to select the add-on access
    2. Provide detailed information about your role
    3. Submit the CRA Form

    Quick Tips

    • Your supervisor must approve the request
    • The CRA splits into multiple workflows that go to approvers and access grantors
      • This can take different times to process
      • All workflows run in parallel for faster processing
    • As each workflow completes, you will get an email each time confiming access is granted/rejected

    My access request was rejected? Now what?

    Rejection is hard, but don't worry we have a system in place to minize the times a CRA is rejected. Typically a rejection happens when an access request does not have enough information or the role doesn't align with the access rquested. We do our best to gather more information when we have a question. If you do get rejected, be suure to take note of the reason.

    Keep note that a rejected CRA does not affect all the other requests made. It is only for that specific access.
