Important Banking Information

Accepting Foreign Checks for Deposit

Clemson University accepts deposits of foreign checks for many countries. Foreign checks are credited to your account in a matter of days. Make sure the foreign check has micro encoding on the bottom of the check. With the micro encoding missing from the item and with no U.S affiliated bank identified it means that it may be a Foreign Draft and not a check. You can accept a foreign draft, but you must contact Cash and Treasury Services to negotiate the draft. The draft will be taken to our Banking Institution to be sent for collection. Collection will take 4 to 6 weeks. It is important to note that due to a $35 or higher processing fee, the bank will not accept a foreign item for collection with a face value of less than $100.

If you have any questions please contact Cathy Freeman with Cash and Treasury Services at 864-656-0530 or by email, cdorfne@clemson.edu.

Accepting Funds at the University

Departments must be authorized to receive payments on behalf of Clemson University. Approved departments are responsible for ensuring adequate internal controls are in place and secure the collection and proper receipt of monies.

If you would like to accept payments on behalf of Clemson University, please submit a Request to Receive/Receipt Funds Form to Cash and Treasury Services.

Bank Accounts

Bank accounts used to conduct University business are approved by the Chief Financial Officer. The Board of Trustees authorized the Chief Financial Officer to approve the process of opening an account and depositing University Funds in a commercial bank and any other financial organization or to establish a petty cash fund. No other organizational unit, department or administrative office has the authority to open an account and deposit University funds in a commercial bank and any other financial organization, or to establish a petty cash fund except when specifically authorized, in writing, by the Chief Financial Officer.



If you have questions regarding any aspect of our financial process or procedures, please do not hesitate to call 864-656-0530 or email cdorfne@clemson.edu.
