5.5 Request an Exemption from Using Banner AR

Policy Statement

Units must process all receivable transactions through Banner Accounts Receivable (Banner AR), the University of Illinois System's centralized billing system. Some units may request an exemption due to their unique billing requirements.


To request an exemption from using Banner AR:

  1. Consult with University Bursar who will help evaluate whether your unique billing requirements can be served by Banner AR. University Bursar will guide you through the process of requesting an exemption if needed. You may be eligible for an exemption if:
    • Your unit generates a small number of receivable transactions each month.
    • All your unit's receivables are paid within 30 days of providing the good or service.
    • Your unit's unique billing requirements cannot be served by Banner AR. For example, patient/customer privacy laws or other regulations require or warrant a specialized billing system.
    • Your unit's billing system performs the processes required by state and the system receivables regulations outlined in 5.1 Managing Receivables.
  2. Complete and submit a Banner AR Exemption Request form.
