Accounts Payable.


Accounts Payable

Accounts Payable is responsible for all payments to vendors as well as non-payroll payments to students and employees. This includes, but not limited to, travel reimbursements and reimbursement of business expenses.

All Payments to Vendors

All payments to vendors require the submission of an invoice to the Accounts Payable department and must be reviewed and approved by the requesting department. Payments cannot be made without authorization by the responsible person within the requesting department.

Invoices can be submitted to Accounts Payable referencing the applicable purchase order number and signature indicating approval. Absent a purchase order, departments must complete a Check Request Form with the invoices attached. Access the Check Request Form by clicking the link in the "Check Processing & Check Request Form" box below. Please click on the link below to see the University Purchasing Policy for transactions not requiring a purchase order.

Check Processing & Check Request Form

Checks are processed on a weekly basis and will be mailed unless otherwise noted for pickup. The University’s standard payment terms are NET 30, meaning the invoice will be paid within 30 days of the invoice date unless otherwise negotiated. It is the responsibility of the requesting department to indicate when/if an invoice must be paid within a specific period of time.
