How to Enroll

If you prefer to have your refund(s) deposited into your checking or savings account, you may enroll via your e-portal CAMS account. 

You will need your bank routing number and checking account or savings account number. 

Note: You cannot use a debit card number, but if you have a debit card, you will also have a checking account number.

Important Reminders

Once enrolled, all refunds payable to the student will be deposited into the account you entered. This will continue from semester to semester. It is not necessary to enroll each semester. 

If your bank account information needs to be updated for any reason, you must make the updates.

The Business Office staff does not have access to your ePortal account or your bank information. 

You will remain enrolled in direct deposit until you withdraw from the process. 

You may withdraw from direct deposit at any time. Follow the same steps as above. 

NOTE: Refunds to Parents (from PLUS loan funds, etc) cannot be processed via direct deposit.
