Check Cashing Services
Two types of personal checks (maximum $50) may be cashed by the University Cashier’s Office:
1. The check may be written by the student and made payable to WKU.
2. The check may be written by the student’s parent and made payable to the student.
Western Kentucky University student payroll checks in any amount will be cashed. A student I.D. is required.
Check Cashing Policies
A charge of $20.00 will be made for each check returned because of insufficient funds, closed account, or stop payment.
The check cashing service will be denied to all students who have more than one check returned for nonpayment.
Failure by a student to make prompt payment on returned checks may jeopardize his/her status with the university.
Any unpaid, returned checks are subject to being turned over to the County Attorney’s Office for collection.
Students are advised that the passing of bad checks is a violation of Kentucky statute.
