Check Cashing Policy

Students may cash checks for up to $30.00 per day. The following are required in order to cash checks:

  • Checks should be made payable to: UAH or Univ of Alabama in Huntsville
  • Write your student number on the check
  • Students cannot have a past due account balance
  • Second party checks NOT accepted

This service depends on the availability of cash at the Cashier's Office. Checks are cashed at the sole discretion of Bursar's Office staff. Students who have had checks returned to the University for any reason will not be permitted to cash checks through the Bursar's Office.

Please contact the Bursar's Office at (256) 824-6226 to have an Accounts Receivable hold removed after payment is made. Payments may be made with certified funds (Cash, credit/debit card, cashiers check, or money order). If payment is made by personal check or E-check there is an additional two week waiting period before holds can be removed.
