Departmental Deposits

There are three types of Departmental Deposits: Reimbursement, Revenue Account, and General Expense Offset deposits.

  • Reimbursements are deposits to a particular object code, for example telecom or postage.
  • Revenue Account Deposits are limited to departments that directly generate income and have corresponding revenue accounts.
  • General Expense Offsets are deposited to the Expense Offset object code 4315 to reduce the overall expenses. For example, a payout of an insurance claim may be deposited to this account.

How to make a deposit

  • Cash Deposits must be submitted to American University Washington College of Law's Office of Finance and Administration located in suite 370. The department making the deposit must use a Departmental Deposit form, sign and date the document. Please include the corresponding datatel account numbers. The Office of Finance and Administration will confirm the amount deposited and a receipt of that deposit will be maintained on file in suite 370. Cash deposits are strongly discouraged, American University prefers checks, money orders and credit card transactions.
  • If debiting a credit card, please include: name, credit card number, expiration date and the type of credit card on a separate page.
