Accounts Payable reviews all invoices from external vendors. It is the responsibility of A/P to ensure that each expenditure that is paid by the College is represented by an authorized source document (traditionally an invoice or purchase order), has a proper account number, and is paid in a timely manner upon receipt in the office. For more information on how to request payments to vendors, please visit the appropriate page below:

Please note: In general, checks are issued each Thursday. For more information on the Payment Cycle, please refer to the Accounts Payable Policy.

Finexio Payment Program

The Finexio logo

As we strive to improve our Accounts Payable processes, we have begun an initiative to drive more electronic payments to speed up processing time, enhance security and save costs associated with sending paper checks.

We're excited to be working with payments experts, Finexio, that are helping us drive electronic payment adoption and improve our vendor payment experience.

The benefits of the Finexio program include:

  • Faster Settlement:  Finexio payments are issued and delivered the same day eliminating time involved in processing, mailing and negotiating/settlement of paper checks.
  • Improved Security: Finexio leverages single-use virtual cards which carry enhanced security measures to reduce fraud and guarantee payment.
  • More Transparency: Complimentary access to the Finexio Payee Portal where you can access payment details and connect with Finexio support 24/7.
