Courier Services and Checks during COVID Pandemic

The University’s courier service between campuses will be suspended until further notice. The University Treasurer’s Office runs Accounts Payable (AP) Pay Cycles, which include student payments, twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday of each week).  The AP Pay Cycles will continue as scheduled.  However, after 3/20/2020, we will no longer be sending any checks back to campuses via courier; instead all checks produced from the pay cycle will be direct mailed.

Checks will be Direct Mailed

Due to the current situation, after the 3/20/2020 scheduled courier delivery, the University’s courier service between campuses will be suspended until further notice.

Accounts Payable Checks

Effective immediately, UPST will no longer automatically be processing requests from campus departments to flag an AP vendor check in the system to be returned to the campus.  Instead, when such a request is received, UPST will reach out to the requestor to determine if the check can be direct mailed to the vendor, or if it needs to be placed on hold until alternative arrangements or business processes can be put in place.

Student Checks

Starting with next week’s AP Pay Cycles, all student checks produced from the pay cycle will be direct mailed until further notice. All campuses should strongly encourage students to utilize direct deposit for these payments.
