Accounts Payable

Employee vs. Independent Contractor

Workers determined to be NDSU employees must be paid through the NDSU Payroll Office.   Workers determined to be independent contractors with NDSU must be paid through the accounts payable process, under direction of the Accounting Office.


If a department has a doubt about the appropriate worker classification, an interactive worksheet is available to complete in order to get a ruling from the Accounting Office.
