Student and Departmental Account Services

Services for Faculty and Staff

Student and Departmental Account Services is the central billing and collection point for Lewis & Clark student accounts. We also perform services not directly related to students. We strive to provide highest quality of services to all our customers. These services include: process all funds received by the institution, cash checks, disburse reimbursements, facilitate the sale copy cards, and printing paper.

General Payroll

If you have not elected direct deposit, general payroll checks/advice of deposit are automatically mailed the last working day of each month.

Please visit the Human Resources General Payroll page for details regarding payroll procedures and forms.

Student employee pay day is the 10th of each month. Please visit the Human Resources Student Payroll page for details regarding student payroll.


Reimbursements and petty cash requests under $50 can be received in the form of cash at Student and Departmental Account Services after the request has been approved by the Business Office. We require a photo ID and ask for a signature of receipt before releasing any funds.

Reimbursements and check requests of over $50 are issued either via electronic payment or via paper check. Accounts Payable processes requests once a week. Payment via paper check may be retrieved from Student and Departmental Account Services. Please review the Business Offices’ Accounts Payable page for information about when checks will be available for pickup.

For a summary of Travel and Entertainment Reimbursement procedures and forms, please visit the Business Office Travel and Entertainment Page. For a discussion on reimbursements, please visit the Business Office Accounts Payable page.

Requests to reissue a refund or reimbursement will result in a $15 fee on your Lewis & Clark account. Verify Lewis & Clark has the correct preferred mailing address on record in order to avoid a lost check, or preferred bank information on record in order to avoid a failed electronic funds transfer.
