Policy Manual

Check Cashing Policy

It is the University of Pennsylvania's policy that check cashing at a University facility is a privilege and not a right. An employee who has written a check that is returned by his/her bank is required to redeem the check and all related fees within 10 days of the date of receipt of written notice issued by the University.

An employee who abuses check cashing privileges is considered to have violated University work related conduct standards and may be subject to discipline under existing University policy. (See "Safeguarding University Assets" and "Fraud" policy statements in the Human Resources Policy Manual.)
