Vendor Form Information

  1. To create a vendor number for an individual, we require a signed and dated IRS W9 Form or a contract that includes name, address, social security number, signature and date.  All form must be completed by the vendor/payee.

  2. If a vendor wants to set up banking with the university, then the Direct Deposit Banking Form can be used in lieu of the W9 or contract. Please ensure to include a voided check or bank verification letter.  Any changes to an existing vendor account/information, such as change of last name, address or bank account  requires a new direct deposit form to be completed. Remember to reference the old account information on the form.  Please ensure a voided check or bank verification letter is included with the new banking information.

  3. Forward the signed Direct Deposit authorization form with voided check or alternative form to:
