These guidelines are specific to Direct Deposit and Credit Card Cash Reports and may vary from those established by the Student Payment Center for cash and checks that you deposit through them at Thackeray Hall.

Cash, checks, e-checks, and Lockbox GPN PNC
Lockbox GME BNY Mellon
American Express AMX PNC
Discover Card PCC PNC
VISA/MasterCard PCC PNC
