Important Information

Drop-Box for Payments

To further accommodate our students, the University provides a drop box in Knight Hall which can be used to make payments on tuition, fees, room, board, and other student charges. These payments are picked up on a regular basis by the Cashier's Office and processed in the order received.

Payments of cash, check, and cashier's check can be submitted to the drop box. Please include your or your student's W-number to ensure the payment can be applied to the correct student's account. Payments subject to deadline dates are not considered received until they are processed through the Cashier's Office. For this reason, these payments should be delivered in person to the Cashier's Office in Knight Hall 170. The drop box is located on the wall just to the left (north side) of the Cashier's Office.

Checks returned due to insufficient funds

Please be aware that writing and delivering a check, knowing that the account it is written against has insufficient funds to cover the check, is a criminal offense under Wyoming law. The University will not automatically redeposit a returned check. University of Wyoming regulations require a charge for all dishonored checks. Furthermore, check writing privileges at the University will be permanently suspended for anyone who writes three (3) or more checks which are returned for lack of adequate funds.

The policy of the University is that returned checks will be assessed a minimum charge of $15.00, with a maximum charge double the amount of the check, but not less than $50.00 plus interest and the cost of collection fees.* Returned checks must be redeemed with cash or money order.

*This policy is in accordance with Wyoming statutes §1-1-115, Civil liability for unpaid checks, §6-3-702; Fraud by check; penalties; and University Regulation 3-176, Dishonored checks payable to the University of Wyoming.
