How to set up direct deposit/ eRefund

If a student is awarded financial aid in excess of their bill amount, they can receive the funds through our eRefund process directly into their checking or savings account. Refunds are issued in October for the fall semester, and in February for the spring semester.

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

1. Log into Navigator.

2. Once at the Student Homepage, click on the "Financial Account" tile.

3. In the menu bar on the left-hand side of the screen, click on "Student Accounts".

While performing step 3, please make sure pop-ups are not blocked on your browser.
