Unidentified Receipts

Unidentified receipts are funds received by Cornell for which no account or amount payable has been found. Unclaimed funds are credited to an unidentified receipts account, where they will remain until claimed. To minimize your department's loss of revenue due to unclaimed funds, please inform our office of expected wires.
