RE: Check Cashing / Deposit Policies
TO: All Staff
Please follow these instructions when cashing or depositing checks from our students.
- Check cashing by customers is limited to $500.
- Two pieces of identification are required, one of which must be a valid driver's license.
- All checks must be signed on the reverse side at the moment of presentation.
- Out-of-state checks are only accepted from residents.
- International checks may not be cashed. They must first be deposited and can be drawn on after a minimum of 14 days.
- Direct bank deposits and formal reporting procedures are available.
- Payments received must always be deposited intact. Never make disbursements from payments received.
- Never send coin or currency through the mail. Bring it to Accounting Services and obtain a receipt from the cashier. Come before 2 o'clock, so that we can include it with that day's bank deposit.
- Checks and money orders should be restrictively endorsed with these words as soon as you receive them:
