Cash Handling

Cash Handling Training & Certifications

Annual cash handling certification is available online for all cash handlers, supervisors, and fund custodians. The online training program consists of three separate assessments, one for each training group. Review of the Financial Operations Cash Handling Policy and Procedures prior to the assessment will be necessary in order to successfully complete the assessment at 80% or higher.  Once an individual receives their certification, re-certification must be obtained annually. Special arrangements may be made with Financial Operations for one-on-one or departmental training opportunities.

**Review Cash Handling Policy and Procedures prior to completing certifications.**

Online Certifications

Successful completion of the training program ensures the following:

  •    I have read and understand the Financial Operations Cash Handling Policy and Procedures.
  •    I accept responsibility for the university funds I handle, or oversee, and will abide by the Cash Handling Policy and Procedures.
  •    I understand that failure to comply with the Cash Handling Policy and Procedures is cause for disciplinary and/or legal action.
