Electronic Direct Deposit
Are you due a financial aid refund? Be sure to sign-up for Electronic Direct Deposit (EDD).
With direct deposit, your refund (after deduction of University charges) is electronically deposited into your bank account, so you don’t have to watch your mail for a paper check.
How it Works
Sign up for EDD using the steps below. When you’re due a refund, you’ll get an email message, from our office, confirming the amount of the refund and the date we initiated the transfer to your bank.
The time it takes for the money will be dependent on the timelines established by your institution – typically two to three business days. If for any reason your bank won’t accept the funds, we’ll let you know. (This is usually due to an incorrect account number or routing number, so double-check your numbers when you sign up for direct deposit.)
If you change accounts or banks, always remember to update your direct deposit information with us.
