The Treasurer's Office of the College of Charleston is dedicated to helping students and their families in the pursuit of their academic goals by providing accurate information and payment options. The three primary support service areas for students, parents, faculty and staff are:
Accurate billing of student charges and those resulting from other users of College services, ensuring payments and credits are received and properly applied to each customer account in a timely manner. These transactions represent the operating revenue of the College.
The Legal Residency Office is part of the Treasurer's Office and is solely responsible for the determination of residency status of students for tuition and fee purposes. For more information, see legalresidency.cofc.edu.
Accounts Receivable and Debt Collection manage outstanding balances and pursue collection of delinquent student and third party accounts to include Perkins and Baruch loan funds.
The office is charged with the responsibility of collecting and depositing all College funds in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations, and internal policies and procedures; ensuring the security of billing and payment transactions, both physical and virtual. Accurate billing is important as it reflects the operating revenue of the College, timely receipt affects accounts receivable and cash flow.
