Bursar's Office

Department Toolbox

University departments can use the Bursar Toolbox to gain access to information about receiving and depositing, training opportunities, MarketPlace transactions and PCI compliance information.

Departmental Resources

The Bursar's Office facilitates Miscellaneous Non-Student Billing functionality within Banner as a means for departments to bill non-USC customers for goods sold or services rendered "on account."

Required Training
To bill non-USC entities, you must complete Miscellaneous Invoice Training through our office. Please contact to schedule your training.

Billing Process

  • The USC department will create, print and mail official USC invoices to customers. USC invoices are pre-numbered and available through the Cashier’s Office at 1244 Blossom St.
  • Once completed, a copy of the invoice is sent to the Bursar’s Office Accounting and Reporting department and the charge will be recorded on the customer’s account.
  • The invoice directs the customer to mail their payment to the Cashier’s Office where the payment is applied to the appropriate invoice when received.

Monthly Statements
Monthly statements are mailed to the customer on the first of each month.

Past Due Invoices
Invoices are considered past due at 90 days and the Bursar’s Office will communicate with the customer and the USC department by letter regarding the outstanding invoices.

Uncollectible Invoices
At six months, or 180 days, outstanding invoices are considered uncollectable and the invoice is charged back to the department. The customer and USC department are notified by letter of the chargeback.
