Check Acceptance Policy
We gladly accept personal checks for payment when presented with state-issued photo ID.
We cannot accept checks without a preprinted name and address (starter or counter checks) or checks with an expiration date (credit card account checks).
When paying by check or money order by mail, include the student's name and ID number on the check to ensure proper credit.
Returned Check Policy
If a check is returned by your financial institution for any reason, a $25 charge will be added to your account. Catawba Valley Community College will not accept a check from anyone who has previously presented two or more checks that were returned for any reason.
Checks returned for any reason and not paid in full within 14 days of notification may result in the incident being submitted to the Catawba County District Attorney's Worthless Check Program or Magistrate for criminal prosecution as specified by North Carolina General Statutes.
