Spending Funds

Any time you need to make a payment with a University check you need to provide two weeks advance notice. It is vital that you communicate with your advisor and the Financial Operations Office when incurring expenses and preparing paperwork as incomplete or missing components will cause delays in the process. Payments are requested through the Blueprint Finance Module.

All payments require the submission of the Purchase Request form with attached documentation that complies with the requirements listed below for that payment type. In addition, some types of uploaded documents will also need to be physically submitted to the Financial Operations Office before processing can be completed. For details visit our Digital Documentation page.
