Dartmouth offers several payment options for approved invoices including electronic and accelerated payment methods and terms which allow for faster payment with reduced risk. 

Payment Terms

Default Payment Terms for supplier invoices are paid based on the payment method selected, unless otherwise noted and documented within the Vendor Portal.

SUA (Single-Use Account) - Pay upon receipt
ACH - Net 30 days
Check - Net 45 days
International Wire - Pay upon receipt 

Payment terms are calculated based on the invoice date and when it is received by the College. 

Payment Options

Dartmouth pays most vendors via paper check, however, is working to move vendors to electronic payment methods. 

Dartmouth may also pay vendors via a Single-Use Account (SUA) credit card. A Single-Use Account is a card-based payment solution that acts like a check by providing a 16-digit virtual account number for each payment, which allows Dartmouth to set each Single-Use Account with a credit limit that matches the specific payment amount.

How to Enroll in the SUA Program

The enrollment into the SUA Program is managed by the Procurement Department, Accounts Payable and JP Morgan. All questions related to enrolling in the SUA program or updating information for the SUA program should be directed to Procurement Services at
