Through Walsh University's School Treasurer licensure program, students develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions that are critical to success as a school treasurer. Section 3313.22 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) requires that public school district boards of education hire a school district treasurer/CFO. Upon completion of this program (3 credit hours of school law, 3 credit hours of school finance and 300 hours of an internship*), candidates can apply for a school treasurer license through the Ohio Department of Education and be well prepared for these employment opportunities.
