The following are the only student payments processed through Accounts Payable:
- Travel reimbursments for student employees for travel that is done in their function of their paying job, not travel done as a student or for unpaid research
- Commencement awards to graduating students. The documentation must clearly indicate that the student is graduating and that the award will be distributed at commencement.
Wages for work performed and health insurance stipends (First Year Experience only) are processed through the payroll office. All other payments to students must be sent to the Office of Student Financial Assistance (ie.travel stipends/awards, book stipends/awards, and other awards for enrolled students).
The definition of a "business purpose" is the way in which a particular good or service supports the University's mission of education, research, and public service. It is an essential component of expenditure documentation. When using University funds or requesting a reimbursement from University funds, documentation of a clear business purpose is required so that an approver, reviewer and /or auditor, may reasonably conclude and agree that the expenditure is an appropriate business expense.
We process checks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
