Return Check Policy
The college imposes a service charge for checks that are returned. The returned check fee of $20.00 went into effect on July 17, 2002. In addition to the fee, for a period of one year from the date of payment for the returned check, we will not accept a check as payment on the student’s account for which the check was originally written. The only forms of payment accepted during the penalty year are cash, certified funds, and credit card.
We do not redeposit returned checks. When the college receives a returned check, the check writer is notified by certified mail and given 10 calendar days to settle the debt by cash, certified funds, or credit card. Fifteen days from the letter, the check will be turned over for collections through Craven County District Court or other means available to the College.
If you know that a check is going to be returned and you come by the Student Accounts Office and pay the check before the bank returns it, we will waive the fee and penalty. The check will be mailed to you once it is received from the bank.
Any unpaid balances will be turned over to a state-contracted agency and the N.C. Department of Revenue pursuant to N.C.G.S. 105A, the Set-off Debt Collection Act, for Collection.
- A valid picture ID is required to pick up checks (drivers license, military ID, student ID, employment ID, etc.).
