Direct Deposit - Student Refunds

The Cashiers Office now offers DIRECT DEPOSIT as a more convenient means of providing refunds to students. Refunds are a result of credit transactions or adjustments to student accounts and may result from financial aid proceeds, changes in registration, changes in housing/meal plans, or various other transactions resulting in a credit balance on the student account.

The advantages of direct deposit are:

Convenience - no waiting on the mail or waiting in line to receive, cash or deposit checks.
Quick access - the funds are available within 2-3 business days after the credit transactions have been processed.
Safety - prevents loss or theft of check

Signing up is easy. Log into Wingspan, select the Personal Information tab, select Personal Information Dashboard, select Direct Deposit, complete the requested information in the Accounts Payable Deposit section. Please check with your bank to ensure you enter the correct routing number and bank account number. DO NOT ENTER YOUR DEBIT CARD NUMBER. 

Please Note: If the incorrect information is entered, it could take up to 6-8 weeks to reprocess your payment or refund.

You must enter your bank information in the Accounts Payable Deposit section for student refunds, even if you have direct deposit with Payroll.

Once you have signed up for direct deposit, any future credit balance will automatically be deposited into your bank account until graduation or withdrawal.

If you do not elect to have direct deposit, your check will be mailed to your permanent home address. It is your responsibility to keep your address current with the University's Office of Records and Registration. You can view and/or update your address information via Wingspan.

Although the method of disbursement is your choice, we strongly recommend using direct deposit (EFT). It is the best way to get your money quickly.
