Excess Financial Aid and Scholarships

Use the Direct Deposit self service form to make life easier by having us send your money directly to your bank account and to avoid waiting for the Postal Service to deliver your check.

Students will receive notification in their official WSU email when a refund has been issued or they can look at their account in myWSU to see if they have a refund. If the student has Direct Deposit the funds will be deposited into their US based bank account.  Checks are mailed to the student’s primary mailing address. The mailing address is controlled on-line by each student via their myWSU portal and WSU considers it to be correct at all times. Checks mailed to an invalid address will not be cancelled and re-issued for a minimum of ten working days.

The fastest and most secure way to receive your refund is by direct deposit straight into your personal US based bank account. Please visit our Direct Deposit site and complete the online form now to avoid any address issues in the future.
