Deposits of Cash & Check
Deposits made to the Business Office can be made by the following methods, all of which require the use of a Hamilton College Deposit Slip.
Deposits must include a completed Hamilton College Deposit Slip indicating the Department, Date, Account Number and relevant information to ensure the deposit is entered timely and accurately
Deposits of cash should not be sent by Campus Mail. It is recommended that they be delivered in person to the Student Accounts Area of the Business Office (1st Floor Philips Spencer House) during business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30). Outside of business hours, deposits with cash may be sealed in an envelope with completed deposit slip and dropped in the secure lock box located on the porch of Phillip Spencer House.
Deposits of checks may be delivered by Campus Mail, but it is recommended that they be delivered in person to the Student Accounts area of the Business Office or left in the secure drop box located on the porch of the Phillip Spencer House.

The lockbox is checked in the morning during normal working hours
Departments should review account activity on the Hamilton Budget Tool within 3 business days to ensure their deposits are correctly recorded in the account indicated on their deposit slip. Any discrepancies should be brought to the attention of the Student Account Assistant/Cashier at x4324 as soon as possible.
