Our primary focus is to provide the University College as a whole (represented by its governing body, Council) with financial services and advice. This involves the payment of bills and salaries and collection of monies owed to the University College. It also includes the production of monitoring reports and financial plans such as budgets and business plans.
The department also conducts ad hoc exercises such as investment proposal reviews, the raising of funds. We are also required to ensure that the University College operates its affairs within the various existing external financial and tax regulations and ensure that the University College’s financial records satisfy external audit.
In addition to our internal role, we are responsible for the production of financial statements and returns for various statutory bodies. The Department is headed by the Financial Officer.
Admissions to CSUC is competitive and selective and our admission officers review applications using a holistic process. Our office is here to assist you as you prepare to become a student of CSUC.
The Admissions Office is headed by an Assistant Registrar and a team of officers.
