The Accounts Payable department processes payments for the University’s various bills. The Accounts Payable Staff creates Purchase Orders from requisitions by the faculty and staff on campus. They place the orders when necessary and process the payments when invoices are received. The Accounts Payable department also writes the student refund checks and the faculty and staff travel reimbursement checks.

This department also ensures the proper recording of any gifts and pledges that the University receives.

Student Billing provides many services for students. The Accounts Receivable staff updates student accounts daily by applying charges, fines, and financial aid. They also prepare and send bills to current and past-due students, and can answer any questions or concerns students may have about their accounts. They can also set students up on payment plans, and process payments from third-party providers on a student’s behalf (including Sallie Mae and VA Benefits). In addition, on a weekly basis they run student accounts to find accounts with credit balances and process refund/overage checks for those balances. 

The new One-Stop Shop in the Florence E Evans Hall has a representative from the Business Office, as well as representatives from the Records Office, Financial Aid Office, and the Admissions Office. Four important offices for students, all in one convenient location. It is in the One-Stop Shop that you can make payments to your bill and get answers to questions about your account.
