Walsh

Policy on Non-Sufficient Fund Checks

For paper checks: Checks returned to Walsh that are not honored by the student’s financial institution will be charged a non-refundable service fee per occurrence. The student will be notified and expected to pay the owed amount within five business days to avoid collection efforts. The check may be re-deposited only upon request by the student (if allowed by the student’s financial institution). In the case of bank error, a written document directly from the bank or financial institution will correct the situation. After receipt of two non-sufficient fund checks, a student may no longer submit checks as a method of payment. Students who submit a non-sufficient check to register for classes (such as payment of a past due balance) will be dropped from registered courses (5 business days to submit payment does not apply).

For electronic checks: The College’s external payment processor will attempt to redeposit the electronic check. Student will be notified if both attempts fail and will be expected to pay the owed amount within five business days to avoid collection efforts. Students who submit a non-sufficient check to register for classes (such as payment of a past due balance) will be dropped from registered courses (five business days to submit payment does not apply).
