Please include the preparer's email address within the deposit form so that the cashier receipt can be sent.
It is advised to save a copy of this form on your computer
Deposits should be made no later than five business days after the receipt of the funds, or when the amount equals $500, whichever comes first.
The associate bursar or bursar will be made aware of any department that has delivered an untimely deposit and/or stale check(s). The department will be notified and any repeat violation will result in the contact of the department management as well as the university's internal auditor.
