When anticipating payment dates, consider adequate time for campus mail and processing by staff in the Office of Business Operations.  The goal of accounts payables is to process all disbursements within 7 calendar days of receipt in our office assuming appropriate documentation and approval.

*Periodically circumstances require a payment sooner than the next scheduled payment cycle. In these situations, please make reference to this need on the Request for Payment form or contact an accounts payable staff member.  A link is provided below for your convenience.
