Accounts Payable

Office Hours

The Business Office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Accounts Payable disburses payments to vendors, staff and students. Payments are made by check, electronically by direct deposit. Expense reimbursements of under $50, to be made in cash are paid by Student and Departmental Account Services.  

Accounts Payable Schedule

Payments are processed by Accounts Payable once a week. Check Requests received by 12:00 PM on Friday are available the following Friday after 12:00 PM.  Invoices are paid per the vendor terms when due.  Completed check requests under $50.00 that are signed by the budget manager can be taken directly to Student and Departmental Account Services for cash reimbursement.

Check Requests submitted to the Business Office after Friday at noon will not be included in the check run.
Exceptions will be considered as follows:

  • Requests for payment received on Friday afternoon or the following Monday:  inclusion in the weekly run will be at the discretion of the AP staff.  This will depend on the volume of work received before the cut-off.
  • Requests for payment received on Tuesday or Wednesday:  inclusion in the weekly run must be approved by Marietta Lawson (Director of Accounting) or Andrea Dooley (AVP of Finance/Controller).
  • Emergency checks: requests to issue payments  on an emergency basis must be approved by Marietta Lawson (Director of Accounting) or Andrea Dooley (AVP of Finance/Controller).  These will be approved only when the situation is urgent and immediate payment is necessary. The department will be assessed a $25 fee for each emergency check prepared.

If you have not enrolled in electronic payment for reimbursements, payment via paper check may be retrieved from Student and Departmental Account Services. Checks may be mailed to a home or business address. We do not mail checks through campus mail.
