Definition of accounts receivable

"Accounts receivable" refers to the revenue brought into UCSD through the billing process for services or supplies that UCSD departments provide to outside entities.

Departments work with University Billing Services (UBS), a unit within Student Financial Solutions, to enter these charges into UCSD's central records system, ISIS (which is linked to IFIS), and to monitor account status.

Accounts are classified in two ways: Student debt and non-student debt.

Student debt

Information about student debt can be found on our TritonLink webpage

Non-student debt

  • Employees and Entities
    • If invoices are collectible, accounts may be held from the normal collections procedure. If not, they may be assigned to a collection agency
