December 7, 1941

At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II.

2015-16 Budget Allocation

Whew! The 1st semester Reimbursement Request deadline has come and gone. Everyone should be able to breath a sigh of relief. We know that you are busily preparing to close out the 1st semester academically and getting ready to head out for the holidays. However, before you do, please mark your calendar or set a reminder on your smart phone for the next big business deadline.


March 11th 2016 is the Budget Allocation Deadline. This is last day to enter goods and services for requisition or reimbursement in the Online System (OLS).


While this deadline is a little more than three months away, we want to encourage you to begin thinking about your classes for the spring semester and making sure that you enter your goods and services several weeks before the deadline.

THANK YOU FPCS SCHOOL BUSINESS PARTNERS
