Returned Payments

Paper checks that are returned as lacking sufficient funds or fail to clear the bank for any reason are assessed a $30 Return Check Fee and re-deposited a second time.  If the check is returned after the second deposit a second $30 Return Check Fee will be charged to the account.

ACH (web payments) Checks are assessed the same $30 fee if returned for the same reasons as above.  ACH payments will also be re-deposited by College of Charleston and should be replaced with an alternate payment, such as credit card, money order, cash or other form within seven (7) days of the incident if the redeposit is returned a second time.

**Failure to resolve returned checks or ACH payments may result in collection activity and/or referral to law enforcement.
