Bank Accounts

 All funds belonging to West Virginia University must be deposited in a State Treasury bank account per WV State Code §12-2-2 . All cash handling procedures must be in accordance with WVU Funds Handling Guidelines.

In rare instances, there may be a need to open an outside bank account, other than a State Treasury bank account. All funds kept in an outside bank account are collateralized under WV State Code §12-1-4.

Outside bank accounts for WVU affiliated organizations (e.g. student organizations, etc.) are permissible with the following stipulations:

  • Non-state funds are involved
  • WVU’s Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) cannot be used on the bank account. WVU Payroll & Tax Services can assist in getting an FEIN for banking purposes only.
