Financial Systems

Ryerson's financial systems remain available from 2:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily and require RU-VPN2 for off-campus access. RUFIS Help Desk staff are available remotely via phone and email.

Mac users: Please note that the current version of RUFIS Forms (e.g. general ledger form) is not compatible with the Apple macOS Big Sur 11.0. To prevent loss of access to RUFIS Forms, we strongly recommend that you do not upgrade any Mac operating systems running RUFIS to macOS Big Sur 11.0 at this time.

There are two systems used at the university:

Ryerson University Financial Information System (RUFIS or Oracle)

The primary financial system used at Ryerson is the Ryerson University Financial Information System (RUFIS or Oracle). Use RUFIS applications to complete tasks such as:

  • purchasing (iProcurement): Buy goods or obtain services for your department or project.
  • expense claims and reimbursements (iExpense): Seek reimbursement for expenses you’ve incurred and clear your Ryerson Purchasing Card (P-Card) transactions.
  • reporting, budget and inquiry (General Ledger): Check how much money you have left in a department or research cost centre, or review transactions that have been processed for your department or research cost centre.

Invoice Approval System (MarkView)

In addition, Ryerson makes use of a secondary system called the Invoice Approval System (MarkView). Use the Invoice Approval System to approve invoices and process self-service invoicing transactions for low dollar value purchases.

Browser compatibility

Supported browsers for the financial systems include Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and Apple Safari 11. Please note that Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release, version 52 is the last version of Firefox that supports Java (an application required to run RUFIS).
