Returned Check Policy

$50.00 fee on all returned checks.

Personal checks are accepted with a valid KSU Identification card. Should the check be returned from the bank for whatever reason, a returned check fee will be assessed to the individuals account.

Upon receipt of the returned check, the issuer will be notified and informed they have ten days to make *restitution, including any related fees, to prevent any further collection activity. Holds will be placed on the individual’s account.  A personal check will not be accepted as repayment for a returned check.

*(Restitution must be made in the form of cash, certified/cashier’s check, or money order.)


A HOLD is a restriction that is placed on the student’s account. The Bursar’s Office places two types of holds on student accounts:

Registration Hold: this hold will not allow students to register for, add or drop class(es).

Transcript Hold: this hold will not allow students to obtain transcript(s)

Students can check HOLD information by accessing their account online using the KSU WIRED.
