Refund Guidelines

Summer 2013


Direct Deposit Refund

Direct Deposit: As part of San Francisco State University’s commitment to and support of environmental initiatives, students eligble for a refund of tuition and registration fees can select to have their refund processed through direct deposit. The campus “green” initiative sends your funds in a secure, efficient, and timely manner. You do not have to wait for your checks in the mail nor spend time going to the bank to deposit checks. Your money is electronically deposited into your account on time. It is safe and greatly reduces potential identify theft. With a check, your personal and financial information can be seen. Moreover, direct deposit gives you access to your money earlier than check deposits. No waiting is necessary for checks to clear. You must signup for direct deposit at least 10 business days before your refund is issued to ensure that your funds will be processed by direct deposit.


To signup for direct deposit go to Sign Up and Manage Direct Deposit.  You will need your SF State ID and password to log on. You will need to have your checking/savings account no. and the ABA (routing and transit) number. It may take a minimum of five (5) business days for your funds to appear in your bank account from the date of disbursement.
