Accounting FAQ

  • What are the legal names, tax ID numbers, and ownership structure for FNU and the Foundation?
    • We are organized as two separate 501c3 non-profit corporations: (1) Frontier Nursing University, Inc. Federal Tax ID: 61-1124267. Our KY Sales Tax Exemption # is D-17877. (2) Frontier Nursing Service, Incorporated Federal Tax ID: 61-1124266. The University is the "sole member" of the Foundation (#2 above) meaning that the University essentially owns the Foundation. Each organization files a separate 990 tax return but there is a single consolidated audit that covers both entities.

  • Who should I contact about preceptor payments?
    • Lauren Barnes is the main contact for preceptor payments. The best way to reach her is through e-mail. You can e-mail her here: Lauren.Barnes@frontier.edu
  • Why haven't I received my stipend for precepting?
    • The most common reasons for not having received your preceptor stipend are: A. The student's RCF hasn't yet submitted the hours to our Accounting Department. The student can check with their RCF to ensure that they have presented all paperwork required for the RCF to submit the preceptor's hours. If the RCF has all necessary paperwork from the student they can submit the hours through the link supplied in the Banyan Tree Portal. B. We do not have the necessary paperwork from the preceptor to process a stipend. Upon hours being submitted, if we do not have a Payment Election Form on file for a preceptor, a representative from Accounting will send an e-mail to the preceptor requesting this information. That e-mail contains a link to the Payment Election Form. If you feel that this may be the reason for a delay in payment you can utilize the following link to complete your payment election. https://portal.frontier.edu/web/fnu/payment-election-form/ Once submitted the accounting department will be notified and your stipend will be processed. This generally occurs within 14 business days.
  • What is the schedule for Accounts Payable check runs?
