- Accepting Foreign Checks for Deposit
Clemson University accepts deposits of foreign checks for many countries. Foreign checks are credited to your account in a matter of days. Make sure the foreign check has micro encoding on the bottom of the check. With the micro encoding missing from the item and with no U.S affiliated bank identified it means that it may be a Foreign Draft and not a check. You can accept a foreign draft, but you must contact Cash and Treasury Services to negotiate the draft. The draft will be taken to our Banking Institution to be sent for collection. Collection will take 4 to 6 weeks. It is important to note that due to a $35 or higher processing fee, the bank will not accept a foreign item for collection with a face value of less than $100. If you have any questions please contact Cathy Freeman with Cash and Treasury Services at 864-656-0530.
