What We Do

Student Financial Services (SFIN) and University Cashiering are part of the Business and Finance Division.  Student Financial Services is responsible for the collection of student payments for tuition and fees, preparation of disbursements/refunds of financial aid credits, distribution of student short-term loans.  The Cashiering Office, operated by Student Financial Services, is responsible for distributing payroll warrants and other reimbursement checks to faculty, staff, and students, issuing petty cash reimbursements, as well as parking permit sales and distribution of permits.

Student Financial Services Continuity Plan

Business and Finance (B&F) is committed to continuing operations as efficiently as possible to serve student, faculty, and staff during campus impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, we have created business continuity plans for each B&F department that outlines how each unit has adjusted hours and processes to function remotely, how staff can be contacted, and what services have been modified or suspended.
