Treasury Branch Notice to Temporarily Restrict Acceptance of High-Value Checks
Treasury Branch Notice 18 – January 12, 2023
Effective immediately, Student Government will not be accepting physical checks with a value of $250.00 or more. This is a temporary policy and will affect all Student Government operations including Student Government Appropriations and Student Senate Finance Committee Grants. This temporary policy will expire at 9:00 AM ET on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, unless extended by the Student Body Treasurer. Student Government will continue to be able to issue checks to student organizations for allocations.
If a student organization needs to return funds for either the SG Appropriations or Finance Committee Grants processes, they are recommended to return funds via online payment on the new Student Government E-Store.
Student Government continuously works to improve the SG Appropriations and Finance Committee Grants processes. We know this temporary policy change might negatively impact some student organizations, but we are always re-evaluating our processes and procedures to ensure that they are efficient and appropriate for all stakeholders.
Student Government strives to support student organizations in any way we can. If you or your organization has any questions or concerns, please contact either Deputy Treasurer Aiden Portnoy at firstname.lastname@example.org or Student Body Treasurer Harrison Andrews at email@example.com.
