Accounts Payable does not print or mail checks on site. The University utilizes Wells Fargo Bank's Payment Manager service and all checks are printed and mailed from the Wells Fargo processing center in Tempe, Arizona.

Payment Schedule

Payments are typically released within five business days of submission of a fully approved and complete payment request. Vendor payments are paid within the vendor payment terms.

  • ACH/Direct Deposit (typical delivery in 2-6 business days) Direct Deposit is processed immediately after payments are released, and deposited into the recipient’s bank account the following business day.
    • Please note: typical delivery of student account refunds and emergency loan requests are 2-3 business days.
  • Paper checks (typical delivery in 7-11 business days) Paper checks are mailed the following business day after payments are released. We cannot predict the mail delay, but checks typically arrive at their intended address about a week after they are mailed.

ACH/Direct Deposit is always the fastest means of delivery.
