A $25 returned-item processing fee will be assessed for each check or credit card charge that is returned to the college by the student’s bank, including stop payments initiated by the student.

If your check bounces

The Cashier's Office will notify you by email if your check is returned for any reason. A "returned check hold" will be placed on all accounts, which will block your ability to add/drop classes, obtain grades or transcripts, or any other records or registration service.

To remove the hold on your account, you must pay – in cash or certified funds – the amount of the original check plus a $25 returned item charge.

If your check is returned and you decide to drop all your classes, you must follow the procedure for dropping classes.

De Anza College reserves the right to refuse to accept personal checks from anyone who has previously written bad checks.
