Cash, cashier’s check, and money orders are accepted in the FVSU Cashier’s Office Monday to Friday from 8:15 am to 4:30 pm.  We are located in Office 230 of the Troup Administration Building

A $30.00 return check fee is charged for any check (physical or electronic) returned and not processed by your banking institution for any reason.  The university does not accept counter checks and reserves the right to determine acceptability of all checks.
