Set up direct deposit for your student account

A credit balance in your student account is created when you have financial aid remaining after all eligible charges to your student account are paid in full. Once all charges have been paid, the University sends any money left over in your student account to you. Direct deposit is an easy, secure method that transfers your credit balance automatically.

You must have your entire credit balance sent to one bank account.

To set up direct deposit, you will need your bank's routing number and your bank account number, both of which can be found at the bottom of a personal check. This information can also be obtained by your bank. Debit and credit card numbers will not work for direct deposit.

Important: there are two steps to setting up direct deposit:

  1. Entering bank information
  2. Enrolling in direct deposit

Make sure you have completed all steps and have confirmation that you are enrolled in direct deposit.
