How to set up direct deposit/ eRefund

If a student has a credit balance from excess financial aid, dropped classes, or an overpayment, they can receive the funds through our eRefund process directly into their checking or savings account. Financial Aid refunds are issued in October for the fall semester, and in February for the spring semester.

Refunds to debit cards are not an option at this time. Please make sure to use a bank routing number and bank account number when filling out the information required for direct deposit.
