Accounts Payable Topic: Refunds


On occasion, a department may receive a refund check from a vendor.  If you do not believe that this check belongs to you, please contact the Cashiers Office, or Accounts Payablefor assistance.


To receive proper credit and avoid the need to reimburse the vendor later, the department should:

  • Note the purchase order number on the check stub and, if available, attach the original vendor invoice to the check.

  • Send the vendor’s check to A/P at Mail Stop 1053.

  • If a credit was not already taken by UNLV:

    • The check will be endorsed;

    • A deposit form will be prepared to credit the original account charged for the purchase; and

    • The deposit will be forwarded to the Cashiers Office by Accounts Payable.

Some things to remember:

  • If the check does not appear to belong to you, it may not
  • Be certain to attach any pertinent documentation, so that the funds may be deposited into the correct account
