Miscellaneous Accounts Receivable


Procedure Updates Due to Coronavirus

Cash Operations, located at A-11 in the lower level of Warner Hall, is closed until further notice in an effort to minimize on-campus traffic. As such, all payments to CMU that are received from external sponsors should be sent to a lockbox or wired directly to the university. AR includes these payment options on the invoices and is also reaching out to sponsors with this request. Please request that sponsors pay by wire or send checks to one of the lockbox addresses below to facilitate timely payment and application to university accounts. For questions, contact AR at univar@andrew.cmu.edu.

Accounts Receivable coordinates the processing of university billing for miscellaneous receivables (excluding sponsored projects and student tuition and fees) through the Oracle Accounts Receivable module in accordance with the university billing guidelines and procedures. This includes the creation of accounts receivable within the system, posting of cash receipts against receivables, spreading revenue based on the earnings process, and the dunning process in conjunction with department input.


Accounts Receivable is scheduled to close monthly the third business day after a month end.
