HR Disbursement vs. Request for Check Forms
Some payments made by the University are paid through Human Resources (HR) instead of Accounts Payable (AP). Due to the nature of these HR disbursements, and the signatures required on Request for Checks (RFC) for these types of payments, we have been requested to implement a form specific for HR Disbursements. Please visit the HR Disbursement vs. Request for Check Forms page for more information.
