Check Deposit Procedures 

Deposits to Sponsored Projects

Submit sponsored project deposits to Sponsored Projects Accounting, Nord Hall, 6th Floor, C1 (Mail Stop 7037). If using campus mail use a confidential envelope marked "personal to be opened by addressee only." Payers (e.g. sponsoring agencies) should send their checks directly to Sponsored Projects Accounting. Research, special programs, training, and miscellaneous accounts can be identified by their budget type.

Charitable Contributions

Submit charitable contributions to Advancement Services, University West/BioEnterprise Building, Room 406. As noted in IRS Publication 526, a charitable contribution is a contribution or gift to, or for the use of, a qualified organization such as CWRU. It is voluntary and is made without receiving, or expecting to receive, anything of substantial value. For a contributor to claim a tax deduction they must be received and acknowledged by Development Services.

Submit all non-charitable deposits to the university Cashier, Yost Hall room 165.

Check Pickup Procedure

Checks should be picked up at the Cashier’s Office

Petty Cash Checks

Any department representative -- with photo identification -- may pick up petty cash checks. These are the only checks the Cashiers' Office will cash - and only for the payee. The Cashier's Office requests prior notice for cashing any petty cash check which exceeds $500. This gives the office time to handle the request.

Salary and Salary Advances

Only the payee -- with photo identification -- may pick up salary and/or salary advance check.

Student Refund Checks

Only the student -- with photo identification -- may pick up a student refund check.
