Cashiering Services: Before You Make a Deposit

Read the information below before you make a deposit at the Central Cashier's Office.

When to make deposits

If your department receives payments in the form of cash or checks, submit these payments immediately to the Central Cashier's Office. If you hold cash or checks, you increase the chances for loss by theft or through stale dates or closed accounts. In addition, late deposits can result in a loss of interest income to UCSD.

Where to make deposits

The Central Cashier's Office is located in University Center, Building 402, Suite 170 in the Student Services Center (map). The office is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Before or after office hours, you can place department deposits into the Central Cashier's inside or outside drop box (you will receive a receipt in the mail).

Foreign currency and banks

Avoid accepting payment in foreign cash and checks written on foreign banks. Accepting payments only in U.S. cash or checks written on U.S. banks helps avoid delays and potential extra charges. For example, your department would have to pick up extra charges caused by delays or losses in currency exchange rates. See How to Complete a Deposit Advice Form for more information.

Checks you deposit must

  • Be made payable to either "UC Regents" or the "Regents of the University of California"
  • Be completed for the proper amount
  • Be signed
  • Have a current date (post-dated checks are not accepted)
  • Have a complete address
  • Be endorsed on back with the department endorsement stamp.
