Tax Department Requires Separate Transactions for Spring and Fall Scholarship Payment - 06/24/10
Academic areas that pay scholarships on a Direct Invoice Voucher (DIV) through the Tax area now need to process a separate Form DIV for each scholarship payment, said the Tax Department.
In the past, as a matter of convenience and efficiency, Tax accepted a single DIV with both the fall and spring payment dates. It will now require two distinct transactions. The change will prevent issuing scholarship checks in the spring to non-enrolled students.
Under the current process, the DIV is keyed into the Accounts Payable system in July or August with the fall and spring payment dates. Students who do not return for the spring semester will still be issued the scholarship check for the spring.
Many departments have already made this procedural change on their own and require the student to prove spring enrollment before the second DIV is created in January.
For questions or concerns, please contact the Tax Department. A link to Instructions for OnePurdue Direct Invoice Voucher is available on the Accounts Payable Forms page of the Accounts Payable website.
