Accounts Payable


Accounts Payable is committed to supporting the educational mission of the university through exceptional customer service to the university community, providing timely and accurate reimbursement processing, and ensuring compliance with UHCL, UH System, and State of Texas guidelines.

What You Need to Know

Accounts payable is responsible for processing invoices from vendors for goods and services purchased by UHCL. In addition, we process all employee and non-employee reimbursement for expenses incurred for UHCL-related business activities.

Our payments are electronic and rely upon vendor set up in a platform called PaymentWorks. We ask that all vendors and suppliers enroll in PaymentWorks to enable electronic payments.


PaymentWorks is an automated, self-service, payee management platform.

Payees are first invited to join by UHCL, and then after their email address has been verified, enter identity elements in a networked environment which reduces data entry error and ensures federal and state compliance. They enter contact, address, tax and banking information.

Please see our Resources page for additional information.
