. The Treasurer’s Office disburses checks and electronic payments from vouchers submitted by the campuses through the University Finance System.
Checks and electronic payments are generated every Tuesday and Thursday, and mailed the next business day.

. Since wire transfers require additional information not available in the vendor file, please contact the Accounts Payable Manager
for instructions as to how to request a wire transfer.
