BAR Invoices

The Billing and Accounts Receivable (BAR) system has a month end process that runs during the evening of the last working day of the month, and includes the bill presentment process.

  • Non-students

    • Accounts with external indicator values of C & N are presented with a paper invoice each month. See How to Find a Customer Account Number in BAR for more details on external indicators.
    • File provided to outside vendor who prints and mails invoices within 72 hours.
    • Each version (C or N external indicator) of the invoice displays activity for the month just ended.
    • Paper invoices are not produced if the sum of all unpaid charges is less than $25.
    • Payment deadline is the 20th of each month (previous working day if the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday). The payment deadline occurs in the third month following the date of the posting.
  • Students

    • Accounts with external indicator values of blank, I, M & S have their invoices presented to them in the consolidated BruinBill. This is a web application accessed using MyUCLA.
    • Email reminders sent to students with unpaid balances on the first and fifteenth of the month (students may view and pay virtually any time).
    • Monthly payment deadline is the 20th of each month (previous working day if the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday). The payment deadline occurs in the month following the date of the posting.

The departmental deadline for posting charges to appear on the monthly invoice is the last working day of the month at 8 p.m.
