Administration of Student Awards by Financial Services
Currently, Financial Services administers a subset of student awards processed within the University. With the implementation of PeopleSoft Student, all student awards will be administered by the School of Graduate Studies (if the recipient is a current graduate student)and the Office of the University Registrar, Student Awards (for all other students).
This change will be effective March 8, 2011.
What Does This Mean To You?
Instead of submitting a cheque requisition form to Financial Services to initiate payment of a student award, the new Student Award Payment Form must be completed and forwarded to either the School of Graduate Studies, or the Office of the University Registrar, Student Awards, depending on whether the student is a graduate student or not. A copy of this form and instructions on where to send it can be found on the website of the School of Graduate Studies at http://www.queensu.ca/sgs/forfacultyandstaff.html
This transition will not affect student award payments in 2010-11 that were in place prior to the launch of PeopleSoft Student (prior to March 8, 2011). For student awards paid through research projects, Research Accounting will continue to administer project setup and prepare financial reports where required.
When and how students are paid these awards may change as part of this transition, to line up with when and how student awards are normally dispersed by SGS and Student Awards. Students will be contacted directly by SGS or Student Awards with information about dispersal dates and other relevant information.
