Cash Handling Policies & Procedures for all Accounts (Departmental and Student Activity)
Student Fiscal Services is responsible for receipt of all funds for the University. All checks written to Fort Hays State University must be deposited with Student Fiscal Services. See the Deposit Policy for guidance concerning departmental and student organization deposits.
Deposits must be made at least once a week. Hand deliver deposits to Student Fiscal Services, located at 317 Picken Hall, using the secure deposit bags. If you do not have deposit bags, stop by our office to pick up several of them before you create the deposit. DO NOT send deposits in campus mail.
Student Fiscal Services provides deposit slips for sales in Hays (non-destination sales) and for sales outside of the Hays city limits (destination sales). Destination sales tax applies to all taxable items or services delivered to a location outside the Hays city limits but within the State of Kansas.
