  • All Requests for Checks are date stamped and reviewed by the Accounts Payable Office for completeness and proper approvals.
  • The Accounts Payable Office will make every effort to correct minor errors found on the check request without returning it to the origination department. It is, however, the responsibility of the department to forward complete and accurate paperwork to the Accounts Payable Office. Check requests not following the University's guidelines will be returned with a rejection notice.
  • The Accounts Payable Office produces checks at least twice a week. Checks under $10,000 are usually mailed within 3 business days. Checks $10,000 and over are signed by two financial officers of the University before they are mailed.

If the situation arises and a wire payment must be made, please bring the following information to Accounts Payable. We will then forward the information to the appropriate people for approval. The department will incur a $25.00 extra charge for each wire processed.
