As of January 2010, Direct Deposit is the required method of issuing student account refunds to the university students with credit balances. Students are strongly encouraged to sign up for Direct Deposit well in advance of any anticipated student account refunds, and may do so online via the "Finances" section of the UCD Access portal.
Students will no longer be able to pick up their refund check from the Bursar's office - they will only be issued via Direct Deposit or through the mail. Direct Deposit refunds will be issued on a nightly basis. Paper refund checks will be mailed once a week to students who have not yet signed up for Direct Deposit.
