University will "purchase" items due to return of non-sufficient fund items by the bank.

1. Gift/Donation/Departmental Revenue

The original receipt/entry will be reversed and the returned item will be sent back to the effected department.

2. University Student Account Revenue

A hold will be placed on the Student's account in the amount of the returned check plus a returned check fee of $30.00.  The student will be notified by mail about the returned item received by the University, as well as the procedures to clear the NSF item. In order for the hold to be removed, the student will need to remit payment in the form of a cashier's check, money order, or cash.  In the instance of a second violation, check writing privileges will be suspended for 2 years from the date of the first violation.

The student will receive a follow up letter 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days from the date of the NSF item if it has not been cleared. If the NSF item has not been cleared within 90 days, it will be sent to the District Attorney's Office.
