Sign up for Direct Deposit now by logging into your Student Administration account. Once you’re logged in, click on “Enroll or Edit Direct Deposit Information” under the Finances section of the Student Center.

Important Reminders:

  • Refunds for excess financial aid cannot be given until your financial aid has actually paid out to your fee bill.
  • If the UConn Financial Aid Office later determines that your financial aid  eligibility has changed, you may be required to repay all or a portion of any funds that were deposited to your account. The most common reasons for this are a change from full-time to part-time status, a change in your need calculation, or withdrawing from the university.
  • It is your responsibility to verify that all direct deposit payments have been credited to your bank account before making any purchases against these funds.
  • You must update your bank account information if there are any changes to the account.
