Students and staff members may cash personal checks for a maximum of $50.00 per calendar week. Bring your ID card or driver's license to the Cashier's area in the lobby of the Student Services Building.
A fee of $25.00 is charged to any student or staff member who presents a personal check that is then refused for payment by the bank. The student or staff member must pay the $25.00 fee, plus the amount of the check, within thirty days of notice. Otherwise, the returned check information will be delivered to the District Attorney for collection and possible further action.
When a check is returned or refused, the student or staff member is on probation for four months from the date of the redemption of the returned check; this person will not be able to cash a check at TSTC during these four months. This person must pay all charges and fees by cash, money order or cashier's check during these four months, unless the check refusal is due to admitted error upon the part of the bank.
TSTC does not accept two-party checks, temporary checks, or post-dated checks. TSTC does not accept checks for balances more than nine months old.
All checks must be drawn on a U.S. bank, and payable in U.S. dollars.
