Cash Handling & Petty Cash
Change Orders and Petty Cash Fund Check Cashing
The Office of the Bursar has significantly reduced the amount of cash it keeps on hand. As a result, we request that departments requesting to cash petty cash checks greater than $250 and change orders in excess of $500 provide two business days notice. By providing this advance notice, it will ensure that we have the funds on hand to complete your request.
Transactions for smaller amounts will continue to be completed on a walk-in basis.
Please contact Sally Kim at x7553 or UAF-Bursar@alaska.edu to schedule change orders or petty cash transactions.
