Why Sign Up for the Direct Deposit of Student Refunds?

  • Direct Deposit is the fastest and most secure way to receive your refund. By electing this option, a student's refund will be directly deposited into their checking account, at the financial institution of choice, which will be faster than waiting for the check to arrive in the mail.

  • Generally, undergraduate student refund checks are mailed to the permanent address listed in the Albert Student Center, while Graduate student refund checks are mailed to the mailing or local address. Electronic refunds eliminate the 5-7 days of mail time and give you faster access to your funds.

  • Convenience:
    No pacing by the mailbox, or wasting time waiting on lines at the bank because your refund money will automatically be deposited into your account.
  • Security:
    Your check cannot become lost or stolen.
  • Flexibility:
    Switching accounts or changing banks is easy. Just log onto the NYU Office of the Bursar eSuite via the Albert Student Center.
