Banking & Merchant Services

Cash and Check Deposit Options

In Fall 2022, Banking and Merchant Services (BMS) introduced to campus six different methods of depositing cash and checks. Units may mix and match deposit options to suit their operations. These options enable UF units to leverage technology and alternate drop-off locations to make cash and check deposits to the bank faster and efficient.

Banking & Merchant Services is responsible for cash management of the University.  This includes banking administration, receiving and depositing University revenue, and reconciling University bank accounts.  In addition, this area establishes and administers payment card and e-commerce activities.
