CRM 307 - Bad Checks

The policies on this webpage have been streamlined and reformatted, and are now available on the University Policies webpage. We ask that you use this new resource, as future changes, additions to or eliminations of these policies will only be made to the University Policies webpage, and policy manuals you may have used in the past will no longer be updated. 

Service Charge to Be Assessed - A bad check service charge (amount to be established by Campus Business Services) is to be assessed for each check that cannot be cleared and collected by a depository bank after two attempts.

Authority to Waive Service Charge - The Campus Cashiers Office has the authority to waive the bad check service charge under unusual circumstances.

Notice of Service Charge to Be Displayed - Information regarding the bad check service charge must be prominently displayed by all units accepting or cashing checks.

Campus Level Collection Efforts:

Responsibility of Campus Cashiers Office - The Campus Cashiers Office is responsible for campus level collection efforts which may include written requests, telephone calls and personal visits. Note - If a second written request is made, it should be by certified mail.

Each campus has its own procedures if these attempts fail.
