FAQ Answer

How can I identify a foreign check?


Any check drawn on foreign banks and issued in foreign currency or U.S. currency. These items must be processed through foreign collections. If you are unsure, please fax the item to the Cashier's Office at 215.573.8610 for review prior to submitting your deposit. Please review foreign items carefully because some items appear to be foreign but can be processed as domestic checks. In order for an item to be processed and clear as a domestic item, the check must be in U.S. dollars and the U.S. bank's clearing information must be indicated on the check. This information would include, but not limited to, bank name, ABA Number (bank routing number), bank account number. Reminder: Bank fees have been exceeding the face value of smaller international checks, thereby forcing the University to establish a $100.00 minimum on all international checks.
