Student account functions range from helping students understand and meet their financial obligations, to complying with regulations and industry standards, to taking in and paying out thousands of dollars. Bursars are also tasked with financial literacy education, minimizing student and parent loan debt, and reducing institutional bad debt expensing. Join members of NACUBO’s Student Financial Services Council to learn how student accounts offices across the country are dealing with these and other issues; you’ll walk away with a better understanding of bursar operations.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine how student financial services staff help guide students to completion.
  • Review the council’s various projects and deliverables.
  • Understand how Higher Education Act reauthorization proposals can impact the student accounts office.
