Student Financial Management (SFM) is responsible for management of student related finances. Reporting to Teresa Tsang, there are three main portfolios.
- Jeff Hsiao’s portfolio oversees Canadian and US student loans, UBC Bursary assessment for both campuses, and Undergraduate scholarship and award program budgets for Vancouver.
- Cicy Guimond’s portfolio includes budget and forecasting for Enrolment Services, tuition and student fee assessments on both campuses, and tuition allocation in Vancouver.
- Maria Mannella’s portfolio contains all tuition payment and refund processing, financial holds, iMED administration, T4As, and more.
