Institutional Deposits

Policies and Procedures

All funds collected for the state must be deposited into the institution's account. Deposits should be made in accordance with State regulations which includes depositing amounts over $500 within one day or receipt and depositing all funds within seven (7) days.

All U.S. checks or money orders must be made payable to the UConn Health in U.S. funds.

Please note: Checks made out to UConn Health staff directly will most likely result in amounts being reported to the IRS as paid to the employee and thus create a tax liability. To avoid this issue please ensure ahead of time that checks will be cut to UConn Health rather than individuals.

Checks should be stamped on the front with the date they were received, to comply with statutes.

Cash deposits must be hand delivered to the Bursar's Office by department personnel.

Misuse or willfully neglecting UConn Health funds will be subject to disciplinary actions as stated in the Rules of Conduct Policy 2002-03.
