This from Lissa Perrone, Business Affairs office:
Business Affairs will not be doing the 1st of term in-person student check distribution for Fall term, as part of our planning to help prevent the potential spread of the flu virus. Direct deposit payments are scheduled for deposit into students’ banks on Monday as usual. But printed checks will be sent in the mail on Monday 9/28, they will not be available for pick-up at the Cashier’s window.
After careful consideration and consultation with our partners in Financial Aid and Student Affairs, we determined that in order to reduce the risk of spreading the flu for students and staff, and because other options of direct deposit and US mail are available, it was a reasonable prevention method to cancel the mass in-person check pick up in the Kerr lobby. The preparation and processing of tuition and financial aid will not change, and all regular Student Finance services will continue – emergency loans, payment posting, billing inquires, etc.
We are working on sending out this notification through several communication channels, including encouragement for students to ensure their current mailing address is accurate.
Please forward this message to others as appropriate, and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
