Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit

The fastest and safest way for WSU to deliver funds is for us to send it directly to the student’s personal bank account.

To Enroll in Direct Deposit at WSU:

  • Log into your myWSU account.
  • Select “Applicant Homepage” or “Student Homepage” from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
  • Select “Account Services & 1098T tab.”
  • Account Services has multiple tabs:
    • Select “Enroll in Direct Deposit” to add or modify a bank account for direct deposit.
      • Input your bank account number and routing number.
      • Read and agree to the terms and conditions, then submit to allow WSU to house your banking information
      • Next you be taken to a Bank Account Summary.  Click on “Proceed to Enroll in Direct Deposit
      • Use drop-down box to add your account, then click Next
      • Review and agree to the terms – click Submit
      • You should then see “Congratulations in your enrollment in direct deposit.”

Some points to remember about Direct Deposit:

  • We can only deposit into domestic United States bank accounts or credit unions.
  • Communications are sent to the student’s official WSU email address when a direct deposit has been sent to the bank. The funds will generally be available in their bank account within three business days after it appears on their WSU student account.

Snail Mail Paper Checks

If the student does not use Direct Deposit, any check will be mailed to the student’s Primary Mailing Address which the student maintains on myWSU. WSU assumes the student has entered the correct address and will mail all actual checks to that address. A check sent to an address the student has failed to update will not be re-issued for 10 working days.

The above does not include your paycheck. Click here to enroll in Payroll Services Direct Deposit:
