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, click the 'Personal Information' tab, and follow the link to 'Direct Deposit Setup', read the Direct Deposit Agreement, and complete the requested information. It's that easy.

When first signing up for direct deposit, please allow 10 business days for the direct deposit to take effect. 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.
