Set Up Direct Deposit for Student Account Refunds

Students can choose to have any refunds (i.e. financial aid, scholarships, fees refunded) automatically deposited in their personal bank accounts through BengalWeb.  Refunds might include excess financial aid or fees refunded when you drop a class.

Bank account information needs to be set up before the refund is processed. 

If you signed up to have your refund or excess financial aid directly deposited into your bank account, the university will begin authorizing those refunds 7-10 days before classes begin.  ISU will continue to authorize additional deposits daily, as they are approved.  Once authorized, a direct deposit will appear in your bank account within 2-4 business days.

Note: If your bank account information is not completely set up and verified before your refund is processed, the system will automatically send a check to your mailing address.
