Unrestricted Budget Department List

If you are unsure whether your department falls into the unrestricted or restricted budget category, the basic rule of thumb is to look at the six digit fund section of your department's bill code.  If the fund is "000001" then your department falls under the unrestricted budget category.  If the fund is anything else, it is restricted.

The following is a list of unrestricted budget departments at HLS:
