Direct Deposit

WSU uses direct deposit to electronically transfer funds to students' bank accounts, including:

  • Student Paychecks
  • Student Refunds
  • Financial Aid Overage Amounts

If you receive financial aid of any kind-- including any scholarships-- you need to set up direct deposit so WSU can disburse your aid. This is required even if you don't expect any extra funds left after paying your student account balance.

Students who do not have a valid bank account listed will experience a delay in receiving their overage amounts. 

If you have questions about your direct deposit, please stop by the Student Accounts in Maxwell 205 or call:

  • 1.800.242.8978 ext. 5075
  • 507.457.5075
