WHAT IS THE JOB?

The Sr. Manager of Student Accounts has the primary responsibility for configuring and maintaining systems and operations for all financial records and billing of current and former students and for ensuring Pitzer College students and parents receive exceptional customer service and care for all matters relating to their financial account.

The successful candidate must demonstrate strong leadership and innovation to assess existing needs, advocate for Pitzer’s interests, design new and improved processes, and implement the student accounts component of the new system.

This is a “working manager” role overseeing the Office of Student Accounts, including one staff member, and performing hands-on work to complete timely billing, collection, and accounting for all student-related revenues, payments, and receivables; and processing receipt of student loan disbursements and issuing refund checks, all in compliance with applicable policies and regulations. The Sr. Manager of Student Accounts will lead collaborations with staff in multiple departments and coordinate the transmission of data from the department system files to the general ledger.
