A credit balance in your student account is created when you have financial aid remaining after all eligible charges to your student account are paid in full. Once all charges have been paid, the University sends any money left over in your student account to you.
If you cancel or withdraw from classes, your financial aid may be adjusted and you may owe some or all of your credit balance back to the University.
Sign up for direct deposit
Direct deposit is an easy, secure method that transfers your credit balance automatically. Go to the MyU finances tab to sign up. To inactivate your direct deposit account, contact One Stop Student Services.
You must have your entire credit balance sent to one bank account.
Use your bank's routing number and your bank account number, both of which can be found at the bottom of a personal check.
If you do not have a personal check handy, or if you are depositing your funds into a savings account, you will need to contact your bank or access your bank account online in order to determine your account number. Routing numbers for most banks are available online. Debit and credit card numbers will not work for direct deposit.
Once you've signed up for direct deposit, all credit balance funds will be automatically transferred into your designated checking or savings account within approximately three business days. Be sure to confirm with your bank that your funds are available in your checking account before you begin to write checks, pay bills, or withdraw money.
