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 payments and deposits

Payments and deposits can be made at the Central Cahier's Office located in the Student Services Center, Suite 170 (map). The lobby hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Payments can also be dropped in the Cashier's Drop Box located on the street side of the office (Rupertus Lane), also by U.S. Mail and Campus 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.

When you are ready to make a deposit, see How to Make a Deposit.
