Deal committee post recognizes student job placements
Keren Deal, professor of accounting, was recently selected to serve on the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Higher Education Committee. AGA is an international committee that has ten members with 3, including Deal, full-time academia serving on it. Her term will last for the next four years.
“It is an honor to be recognized for my past work in both placement of students in government financial management positions, as well as my research and service in government financial management at the international level,” Deal says. “The committee’s goal is to connect the 100 AGA chapters with higher education entities while promoting careers and certification in government financial management among college and university students.”
Account Holds, Registration Cancellation policies change
The Office of Student Accounts is implementing changes to the Student Account Holds Policy and the Registration Cancellation Policy.
Students with account balances of $500 or less will no longer be blocked from registration. However, a hold will be placed on the release of the transcript until the balance is paid in full. If you have a balance of greater than $500, you can either pay it down to the minimum limit of $500 or submit a Request for Finance Clearance Form.
Additionally, only students with a balance greater than $3,000 as of the registration cancellation deadline will have their classes cancelled. However, it is important to note, students whose balance is $3,000 or less are still financially obligated to pay even if they do not attend. If you choose not to attend for a term, you must withdraw online or through the Registrars Office to clear the financial obligation.
