Direct deposit is the fastest and simplest way to receive your excess financial aid funds. Your refund will be deposited directly into the bank account of your choice in 2-3 business days after refunding begins.
Have your bank account and routing number information ready and follow the instructions below.
Setting Up Direct Deposit:
- Go to My Financial Center, click on the "My Accounts" tab and then choose "Direct Deposit."
- Click the Add/Update Bank Accounts button.
- Enter your bank account information and routing number (double check for accuracy!) and save changes.
- Your account will now default as the My Financial Center – Refunds account.
Excess financial aid begins refunding on the 3rd day of classes. If you set up direct deposit you should see your refund in your account around the 4th-6th day of classes, depending on how fast your bank processes the funds.
