The Office of Cashiers, a unit within the Division of Finance, is responsible for managing student finances and consists of five main areas: student account billing and collection, cashiering services, refund processing, sponsor billing, and institutional student loans.  The Division of Finance has overall responsibility for creating a financial environment on campus that meets fiduciary responsibilities, demonstrates stewardship and meets all of our regulatory requirements.

Our Team is committed to excellence in providing financial services to students and the Mizzou community. We have made it our goal to provide these services in the most efficient, friendly, effective, and customer-oriented fashion possible. We look forward to working with you and answering any questions you may have.

Starting Spring 2020, refund checks will no longer be printed on a nightly basis during peak times of year (ie: 10 days prior to the semester beginning through the first two weeks of classes).  Refund checks will continue to be printed on Tuesday nights and will be mailed out the following day. If you would like to receive your refund the fastest way possible, we encourage you to sign up for direct deposit using the instructions listed on our Refunds page.

Below is the following email sent to students and authorized users on June 13th, 2019:
