Check Cashing

Personal checks may be cashed on campus at the Cashier windows on the first floor of the Ashe Building. Check cashing privileges are limited to University currently enrolled students. Checks presented for cashing must be in the name of the employee or the student. Two (2) forms of picture identification (a UM 'CANE Card and a valid driver's license) are required in order to cash any check. A service charge of .30 is assessed for checks up to $75.00 and a service charge of .75 is assessed for checks over $75.00.


Check Cashing Limits
Student Personal Checks $125 per week
Work-Study Paychecks $250 per week

Returned Checks

It is the University's policy to deposit all returned checks twice, automatically and without notice. The returned check fine will be assessed to the student's account, as listed below, after the second attempt. A notification letter will be mailed to the maker of the check detailing the amount and fine for the returned check.

Check cashing privileges will be restricted until cash or certified funds (money order or cashier's check) are presented for payment. A personal check will not be accepted for payment to replace a returned check. Check cashing privileges will be cancelled for those persons who have three (3) or more returned checks.

Returned Check Fines
Checks under $800 - $20 Fee
Checks over $800 - $2.5% of check amount
