Direct Deposit Student Refunds

Enroll in Direct Deposit

(NOTE: Parent Plus Financial Aid loans are not eligible for direct deposit refunds.)

Direct Deposit is a safe and secure process that allows rapid access to student refunds, and also helps with our sustainability initiatives as we reduce the number of paper checks that are printed and mailed each week.

Paper-check refunds will only be processed twice a week. Electronic refunds will be processed daily.

For any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Seawolf Service Center at 707-664-2308 or
