Direct Deposit

Why Enroll for Direct Deposit?

Any payment or refund made to students through MyBill are eligible for direct deposit. We strongly encourage you to enroll for direct deposit as it expedites these payments by transferring funds electronically into a bank account of your choice. It’s the fastest, most secure way to receive refunds at UCD. Direct Deposit also greatly minimizes the chances of problems since there are no checks to be misplaced, lost, or stolen, and there is no delay in receipt of funds, even if you are out of town.

What Happens if I Don’t Enroll in Direct Deposit?

Any payment or refund made to you will be issued as a paper check and you will have to pick it up in-person at the Student Accounting office during regular business hours. This will likely cause a delay in receiving your funds.

How Do I Enroll for Direct Deposit?

To sign up for Direct Deposit, please go to MyBill and click on the “Refunds” tab. We have also developed a step-by-step reference guide to walk you through the enrollment process.
