When submitting requests for invoice payments, reimbursements, advances or non-PO (purchase order) payments, payment handling methods and processing times vary and fees may apply.

Standard processing time begins when the invoice is received by Accounts Payable (AP) and ends when payment is set up according to the terms of the purchase order.

The time associated with delivery of payment (e.g., U.S. mail delivery) is not included in processing times below.

Payment Handling Processing Time Fee
Standard 3 to 5 business days none
Rush Processed and paid in 1 to 2 business days $35
Will Call (Campus and Redwood City) Processed and paid in 1 to 2 business days $35
Wire Processed and paid in 1 to 2 business days $35

Refer to How to: Upload an Invoice or How To: Mail an Invoice to Accounts Payable for instructions on submitting invoices and specifying handling.

The processing time for payments associated with Expense Requests transactions begins on the date the transaction is approved by the department (not the transaction date or origination date) and ends when the payment is issued. New payee set-up requests may add an extra day to the processing time.
