All returned checks are re-deposited once. If the check still fails to clear, a $25 returned check fee is assessed to the student's OPUS account. If the NSF check is for an initial registration payment, the student's class schedule may be canceled. After three NSF checks, the student/parent will be required to make further payments with cash, cashier's check, or money order. A hold may also be placed on the cashing of personal checks at the cashier window.
Payments through the OPUS system can only be made from standard checking and savings accounts. Credit card checks or checks associated with a line of credit will not be accepted. If an online payment fails to clear due to NSF or Account Not Found, a $25 returned check fee is posted to the student account, and the attempted payment is reversed. An enrollment hold may also be placed on the student account until the balance has been paid.
