Returned Checks

If a check or electronic check payment posted to your student account is returned by the bank because of insufficient funds, closed account, invalid account number, or other reason(s), the returned check payment amount, plus a $25 returned check fee, will be charged back to your student account. You will receive an e-mail notice regarding the returned check.

A returned check hold, which prevents registration changes, also will be placed on your student record and remain until a new payment and the $25 returned check fee is submitted and verified.

The $25 returned check fee is assessed for each returned item, regardless of the amount of each returned check.

If an account indicates a history of returned checks, the university reserves the right to suspend a student’s check payment privileges. Returned checks that remain unpaid and/or cases where there are multiple returned checks may be referred to the University Disciplinary Committee and/or the Temple University Campus Safety Services for further action.
