Stop Payment Procedure

The University has established a procedure allowing the reissue of checks which are lost, stolen or mutilated.  In average a stop payment request can only be submitted 15 days after the original check was issued.  This allows any checks lost in the mail to be returned to campus allowing us to resend to an updated address. 

A Stop Payment Request Form must be completed by the employee or department requesting the stop payment.  The form must be fully completed in order for the stop payment to be processed. Once a stop payment is processed; it cannot be reversed. 

  1. A replacement check will be issued and mailed within 5 to 7 business days of form receipt. 
  2. If the original check is later received/found, do not attempt to cash or deposit it.  Return it immediately to the Disbursement office. 
  3. You will be notified if a stop could not be placed because the check has already been cashed.
