Returned Checks and Stop Payment Checks

If a check is not honored by the payer's 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. Returned checks will be billed on your student account - this means that you will see a charge back for the amount of the check. A hold will be placed on your student account, preventing any additional registration activity, until the situation is resolved. PSU is not responsible for any fees that your bank charges you as a result of writing checks against funds not on deposit at your bank.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR CHECK IS RETURNED TO PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY AS NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS YOU MAY BE DROPPED FROM YOUR CURRENT AND FUTURE REGISTRATIONS.

Check writing privileges will be suspended if two checks are returned and all future payments must be made in cash, cashier checks, money orders, certified checks, debit card or Visa/MC.
