Student Business Services offers Direct Deposit as an option for CSU Channel Islands (CI) students to receive their refunds. Direct Deposit allows the University to deposit funds directly into your bank account in an easy, fast, and secure manner.

Some of the benefits offered by Direct Deposit are:

  • It’s faster – you will get your refund within days rather than a week or more.
  • It’s convenient – no check to wait for or deposit.
  • It saves money – no check cashing fee to pay.

Instances of possible refunds are financial aid, tuition overpayments, dropped classes or housing deposits. CI has partnered with Wells Fargo Bank for processing direct deposits to your designated checking or savings bank account.

Enrollment is easy. Have your checking or saving account information ready; this includes your bank routing number and account number. It is important that your banking information is entered accurately.

Log onto myCI, select CI Records, under Student Center; find the "Enroll in Direct Deposit" link. Enter banking information, agree to the terms and conditions, and with a click of a button you are immediately enrolled in Direct Deposit. 

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the benefits offered by Direct Deposit, it also helps CI continue to promote sustainability by reducing paper waste. For added information please check out our Direct Deposits FAQ’s (PDF, 236KB) or contact SBS at: 805-437-8810.
