PREAMBLE
The Office of the University Bursar (the Finance Department) was established right at the inception of the University in 2002. The Department started with only ten (10) staff headed by the University Bursar and deputized by the Deputy University Bursar plus 2 Senior Assistant Bursars, 2 Assistant Bursars, 4 Accounts Assistants. It was accommodated in the office block currently occupied by Directorate of Planning and Development. Due to the rapid growth of student and staff population to about 5,000 and 500, respectively, as well as the need to serve our stakeholders better, the Department has expanded by creating service units, namely the Revenue Mobilization Unit, Expenditure and Payable Unit, Salaries and Wages Unit, Grants/Projects and Assets Management Unit, and Financial Accountability and Reporting Unit.
