Accounts Payable



To provide accurate and timely processing of vendor payments, student reimbursements, bank transfers, and other payments and to effectively document these transactions.

Revised Disbursement Schedule

Effective September 1, 2014, Baylor University’s Accounts Payable ACH and check payment schedule will change to twice weekly, Monday and Thursday. This is a change from the current payment schedule of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Consistent with the current process, vouchers and/or invoice support submitted to the Accounts Payable Office by 3:00 p.m. the business day prior to the next payment day will be paid as follows:

  • Disbursements to employees and students are included the next payment day.
  • Disbursements to outside vendors are paid within 30 days of the invoice date as prescribed by the Baylor University Standard Terms & Conditions unless a specific written contract exists between the parties stating otherwise. Accordingly, these disbursements are normally generated in the payment cycle that is 21 days after the invoice date to ensure payment to the vendor within 30 days of the invoice date.
  • This change should provide increased efficiencies within the Accounts Payable Office. If you have questions or comments regarding the revised schedule, please contact Traci Adcock, Director of Accounts Payable, Email
