Beginning in mid-August 2016, FFRA website content will be moving to the Northwestern IT site's new section for Administrative Systems.

New Training Curriculum Page

The Cafe Training team has been hard at work revamping our training offerings to include more on-demand, online options as well as updated information to coincide with the 2013 NUFinancials upgrade.
