Business Office

Please see the news and announcements section below for more information regarding updates to processes, procedures, and key dates.

The business office is dedicated to providing financial services to the entire Reed community.

We partner with students and parents to develop financial solutions that help make a Reed College education a reality. We handle tuition billing and collections, the budget, financial and tax reporting, accounts payable and purchase card processing, research grant monitoring, cashiering services, and payroll services.
