Returned Checks

If a check is not honored by the bank and is returned to the university, the consequences are serious:
  • The service charge for returned check collection is $25.00 per item-regardless of the amount of the check or the reason it was returned.
  • If a check is written to pay registration fees that are returned after the published registration deadlines the student will be charged an additional $110.00 late payment of fees or dropped from classes. (More on late fees.)
  • Checks that do not pay when presented at the bank will not be resubmitted for payment.
  • Returned checks will be billed on the Banner accounts receivable system.
  • Campuswide check writing privileges will be suspended until the item is paid.
  • Campuswide check writing privileges will be permanently suspended if 5 or more checks are returned.

Repayment

Payment for returned checks requires guaranteed funds in the form of a cashier's check or cash only.

If the returned check is not paid there are two consequences:

  • A hold will be placed on university services which include prohibiting registration, mailing of transcripts, and receipt of financial aid.
  • The returned check can be turned over to the Yolo County District Attorney's Office for collection.
