The University Controller/Accounting Services Office is dedicated to facilitating the primary mission of the University by seeking the most cost-effective methods of delivering services while continuing to implement improvement of services to students, faculty, staff and all other customers.
Accounting Services is responsible for processing and recording complete, accurate and timely financial information to be used for reporting, management, and decision making. The accounting process addresses itself to accounting and reporting on resources used and must provide evidence of compliance with legal requirements.
Fresno State has launched a new process to help students manage funds that they receive from the university, such as financial aid, refunds and scholarship awards. Higher One, a financial services company, is our partner in this effort.
The new procedure to receive funds – which does not require activating a Higher One debit MasterCard – has raised questions about the process and possible fees.
We are using several methods to provide information, including FAQs that can be found at www.fresnostate.edu/accountingservices/money. Students also can pose questions on the university's social media sites, or call Student Financial Services at 559.278.2876.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time of transition.
