Our Offices

The Payroll Office’s primary mission is to serve the campus community by providing accurate, responsive, and timely service in support of the university’s payroll compensation system, benefits and payroll deductions, related payroll taxes, and reporting requirements. We encourage you to contact our office if you have questions or concerns regarding Payroll Services.

Accounts Payable is responsible for processing approved documents for payment. They provide accurate and complete information to our customers and assist them in understanding the entire payment process.

General Accounting monitors the flow of financial activity by gathering data and verifying its accuracy. In addition, the department provides support services to the university community in order to facilitate the management of tangible personal property held in possession by the institution.


The Office of Financial Services supports the educational, research, and service mission of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock by providing support services in the areas of payroll, accounts payable, and general accounting. Our mission is to provide the best possible financial services to our external and internal customers by processing financial transactions, preparing financial reports, complying with regulatory requirements, and providing financial leadership to the university community.

Message from the Director

Welcome to the website of the Office of Financial Services at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. It is our goal to serve the university community regarding general accounting, accounts payable, fixed assets, payroll, reconciliations, and financial reporting with the highest level of professionalism.

We strive to maintain the accounting records of the university, provide accurate and timely reporting and ensure fiscal documents are processed in the best interest of the university and in compliance with state and federal laws along with University of Arkansas System and UA Little Rock policies.

Although we often work behind the scenes, the outcomes of our efforts are apparent when vendors, employees, and campus departments find that their Financial Services experience exceeds their expectations. None of this would be possible without the contributions of the financial services staff. We look forward to serving you.

Nicole Bolin
Director of Financial Services
