Direct deposit is a process for electronic funds transfer to your account at a financial institution you choose. ETSU does not recommend the use of any financial institution. You can use any bank where you have an existing checking account. It is a quick, easy, and safe method of receiving your financial aid refund!
Benefits of direct deposit
Funds are usually available within 1-2 business days following transfer from ETSU. Always check with your bank before spending these funds to avoid non-sufficient funds charges to your account.
Direct deposits can be deposited at your local bank or the bank in your hometown.
Direct deposit is available to you, regardless of your schedule. You don't have to be on campus or in town to receive your financial aid refund.
Direct deposit eliminates the risk of a lost or stolen check. Most problems with financial aid refunds (after aid is received) are with paper checks, not direct deposits.
