The university's standard method of processing and depositing departmental receipts is electronically through Stanford CASHNet. Departments that receive cash or checks on a regular basis should consult with the Office of the Treasurer (OOT) to arrange the most efficient method for handling receipts.

Receipts should be deposited on the day by recording deposits in Stanford CASHNet, preparing funds and delivering them to Wells Fargo Bank. Alternatively, deposits can be recorded using the Department Transmittal (paper form). All deposits require an email notification to the University Payments Office. The Cash and Check Handling Checklists is a helpful guide to the overall deposit process.

CASHNet Access: Departments will need access to Stanford CASHNet prior to processing receipts. Refer to System: CASHNet for more information.
