Students are required to use two-factor authentication when setting up Direct Deposit.  You will be asked to choose the delivery method for your passcode.

Once you have received the code and gained access, the Refund Direct Deposit Signup page will pop up asking for your routing number and account number.  Refer to the image below to determine how to locate these numbers on your personal check.  If you do not have personal checks, you may need to contact your bank or financial institution to retrieve your account and routing number.

After you enter your information, you are asked to authorize the University to make a deposit into the account being set up. If you agree, check the box beside the statement and click the Update my information button.

Direct deposit funds typically deposit into your banking account 3-5 business days from the refund line item date on your MyView account.  You will receive an e-mail from the University before your funds are deposited. 

NOTE:

  • Refunds from dropped courses and/or payments made by check or e-check will have a 14-day delay in the processing.
  • If a credit card payment was made towards your student account in the past 120 days, any refund due to you will bypass your direct deposit setup and be returned to the credit card.
  • Your direct deposit information does not expire.
  • IF YOUR BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION CHANGES, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR UPDATING THAT INFORMATION. If you do not do so, a transfer may be rejected by your bank and your refund will be significantly delayed.
