Direct Deposit

Direct deposit to a U.S. checking or savings account is the University's preferred method for issuing stipends to domestic students. This saves the time of picking up and processing a paper check, and makes the funds available much sooner.

To enroll in direct deposit, you will need your bank routing number and your savings/checking account number.  This information is available on the bottom of your checks or directly from your bank.  These numbers are not on your debit card.

It is the student's responsibility to update banking information. Incorrect banking information for direct deposit will result in a delay in the receipt of funds.  Students are encouraged to re-type banking information in the SSOL Direct Deposit web page in order to ensure accuracy.
