Direct Deposit Information

How do I sign up for direct deposit?

You can sign up for direct deposit via your WebAdvisor account. Log onto WebAdvisor, then choose "Financial Information" and click "Bank Information (U.S.).ā€ You can add/change/delete your banking information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Once your banking information is entered and accepted, you will begin receiving your refunds electronically via direct deposit.

Please note that once you enter your banking information, you do not need to re-enroll each semester. Your information will be securely maintained and used to disburse refunds in subsequent semesters. If you need to modify or delete your banking information, changes can be made through your WebAdvisor account as noted above. For your convenience and safety, an email will be sent to your Quinnipiac email account any time a change is made to your banking information.

What if I choose not to sign up for direct deposit?

If you do not sign up for direct deposit, you will receive your refund via a paper check. Checks will be mailed to your preferred mailing address on file with the Registrar's Office. You can check your address at MyQ Portal > WebAdvisor > Personal Profile. Checks will not be held in the Bursar's Office for pickup. If you need your refund check quickly, the fastest and most convenient way to get your refund is to enroll in direct deposit.

How do I find my banking information so I can enroll in direct deposit?

To enroll in direct deposit, you need to know the routing number and account number for the bank account where you want your funds to be deposited. You can find the routing number and account number at the bottom of your checks issued for the account or by contacting your bank directly.

Is it secure to enter my bank information in WebAdvisor?

All information entered by you is kept secure by Quinnipiac University. Various electronic and procedural safeguards are in place to protect student information.

Can I use a foreign bank account with direct deposit?

No, foreign bank accounts may not be used for direct deposit; however, most financial institutions throughout the United States are in the direct deposit network. If you are an international student and would like your funds direct deposited, you may want to consider opening a bank account with a local bank.

Is there a time/deadline to submit my bank information to receive a direct deposit?

Yes. Your bank information must be submitted on WebAdvisor by Sunday evening at 8 p.m. EST for funds to be released via direct deposit during the week beginning on the following Monday.

What happens if I miss the deadline to submit my bank information and Iā€™m expecting a refund?

If we do not have your bank information on file when a refund is issued, a paper check will automatically be issued and mailed to your preferred mailing address the day after it is generated. Checks will not be held in the Bursar's Office for pickup.

What happens if my direct deposit is rejected?

If your direct deposit is rejected, a paper check will be issued and mailed to your preferred mailing address. Please note that it may take up to two weeks to process the paper check if your direct deposit is rejected.

What are the terms and conditions?

By requesting direct deposit, you are entering into an agreement with Quinnipiac University to initiate electronic transactions. The terms and conditions below are the terms and conditions of that agreement and are legally binding upon you. You should review them carefully before making your request for direct deposit or modifying banking information.
