Account Numbers 

The account number in FAS is a ten-digit number with the following format: 

Taken together, the first six digits are the account ; the last four digits are added to identify a subunit of the account. In the general ledger, the last four digits are called account controls; in the subsidiary ledgers, the last four digits are subaccounts. The full ten-digit coding is needed to process any transaction. For example, an account in the Botany department might be 443250. The number 4432501000 would be used to pay faculty salaries from the account, while 4432505500 would be used for office supplies.
