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:

  1. Click the do it button to go to the direct deposit page in My Financial Center.
  2. Click the Add/Update Bank Accounts button.
  3. Enter your bank account information and routing number (double check for accuracy!) and save changes.
  4. 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.
