Direct Deposit/Check Delivery

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is an expedient and safe way to receive your financial aid refunds to your personal checking account.

To set up Direct Deposit, please download the Direct Deposit Authorization and submit the form to the Bursar's Office as directed on the form.

Check Delivery

Students will receive their excess funds via check, unless a Direct Deposit Authorization is on file with the University Bursar's Office or you have paid by credit card or gift card, in which case the excess credit will be returned to your card. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the student's preferred mailing address on file is accurate and up-to-date.

Important: In order to process your refund, your preferred mailing address in WebSTAR must be current and active. To view/update your address in WebSTAR, click on "View/Update Address and Phone" on your home tab in SharkLink.
