Payment

Emerson College’s standard payment terms are Net 60; meaning payment will be made 60 days after the date listed on the invoice.

If selected to be a College supplier, during online supplier registration, you can choose to enroll in Emerson’s accelerated payment program by selecting early payment options in exchange for discounts. When selecting an accelerated payment option, Emerson will deduct a percentage of the total invoice amount for payments made earlier than the regular payment terms. Emerson will pay the invoice in full if payment is made outside the discount payment terms. See the accelerated payment term and discount rate options listed below. Suppliers have the option to receive payment in multiple forms, including check or through payment to an ePayables credit card. For more information about the accelerated payment program, please contact purchasing [at] emerson.edu (subject: Interested%20Supplier) .
