Checks paid to Cal Poly are usually submitted to your bank only once. If a check is returned to Cal Poly by your bank your student account will be charged for the amount of the check, and a $35 returned check charge will be assessed. Additionally, a hold will be placed on your registration and transcript access. If two or more checks are returned within one year your name will be placed on a cash only list.
If your check (eCheck, or regular check) was returned due to a bank error, a letter from the bank is required to:
- Waive the $35 returned check fee;
- Remove your name from the cash only list.
