If a check (paper check or eCheck) 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 may be placed on your student account or check writing privileges may be suspended if multiple checks are returned. Checks returned because of bank error require a letter from the bank to be sent to the Cashier's Office, and must include the student ID number. OSU 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.
