Returned Check Policy
The Cashier's Office will notify you by mail if your check is returned for any reason (e.g., insufficient funds, stop payment or account closed). 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 with certified funds the original check amount plus a $25 returned check 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 persons who have previously written bad checks. If your check bounces, you are liable for up to three times the amount of the check or $100.00, whichever is more, plus the face value of the check and any court costs. You may also face criminal charges.
