How are things paid for using SEC funds?
Funds you are awarded from SEC can be used in the ways described below.
This will be the primary way that students requesting SEC funds will pay for things. Whoever is requesting the funds will need to pay for the charges upfront using a personal credit card or other means of payment. At a later time the charges will be reimbursed to you from SEC's account. Make sure that you obtain an itemized receipt at the time of purchase.
Please note: No cash or up front payments are made by the University.
2. An Invoice
This method can sometimes be used to pay for goods or services. If an invoice is used no personal money will need to be spent; an invoice is direct transfer between OU and an established OU vendor.
The vendor must be established. This means that they have filled out appropriate paperwork and are registered to receive invoices from OU.
A common example of when this method is used is buying approved goods from Reasor's grocery store. Many local restaurants and businesses are also vendors; ID solutions and Halo are established vendors and there are many others. For a complete list of established vendors, or to get more information about paying for an event using this method, please contact Mattie Lewis in SCM Student Services (Madison-Lewis@oushc.edu).
