Students with checking/savings accounts simply complete the Direct Deposit sign up form online through your myStanState Student Center.

EFT authorizations take effect immediately.

We will send e-mail notifications to your campus e-mail address posting EFT schedule pay dates. Many banks offer automated services by which you can check your account for deposits.  If you don’t have a campus e-mail account, contact the Office of Information Technology.
