Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit will be used as the normal means to distribute all Student Paychecks, Student Refunds and Financial Aid Overage checks.

Student paychecks, as well as all refunds and financial aid overage amounts, will be forwarded to students bank accounts using electronic funds transfer.  Students who have direct deposit information on file will no longer be issued a check for Financial Aid or for their Student Paycheck.

If you receive financial aid of any kind including any scholarships, you should supply us with a bank account in order for us to disburse your aid to you via direct deposit (even if you do not anticipate an overage). Students who do not have a valid bank account listed will experience a delay in receiving their overage amounts. The information you provide will not be disclosed to anyone outside the Winona State Business Office and the Bank. 

We have provided a secure and encrypted web form which will submit your bank account information to the WSU business office.   
You will need your bank routing number and account number. You can find this information on the bottom of your checks.
