For Departments - Sending Deposits:

Departmental deposits (Cash Receipts) may now be sent to the Cashier’s Office for processing by one of the methods listed below. Departments may continue to use their own judgment on the need to submit Cash Receipts while staff are working remotely.

  • Campus mail – Check only deposits can be sent by campus mail.
  • Drop box – Check only deposits can be delivered to the drive-up campus mail mailbox located in the Administration Building parking circle.
  • Night depository – Small cash or check deposits can be delivered to the night depository located on the exterior of the Administration Building near the top of the handicap accessible ramp. Please note the envelope slot in the night depository limits the size of deposits that can be dropped here. For larger cash deposits, please contact Cashier’s Office management for deposit options.

Approval of Cash Receipts may be delayed due to reduced in-office staffing while we are working remotely.
