Payment Compass

Payment Compass was created by UC San Diego's Integrated Procure-to-Pay Solutions (IPPS). It gives people and companies doing business with UC San Diego a simple way to check the status of their payments and to coordinate payment information. Self-registration in Payment Compass is required in order for the Student Life Business Office (SLBO) to process payments and reimbursements to payees.
