Program codes classify transactions by their function. These codes assist in defining the "mission or purpose" of the transaction (e.g., Instruction, Research, Public Service, Academic Support, Student Services, Institutional Support, Operations & Maintenance, Auxiliary Enterprises).

The program code is required when recording an expenditure in all fund groups. Program codes are standardized, and departments may utilize only the program codes that are defined in this section.

A program code is designated by a 5‐digit numeric code.
