Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit Student Refund Information

CSU Dominguez Hills is now offering Direct Deposit as an option for receiving refunds. Examples of possible refunds are financial aid, tuition over-payments, dropped classes, deposit returns for keys or housing, or unneeded parking permits. CSUDH will process direct deposits to your designated bank account or mail checks to your mailing address of record.

By establishing a direct deposit of the refund(s) to your bank checking or savings account you will receive your University refund in a timely manner; normally within several days of the refund post date. To sign up for direct deposit follow the instructions on the sign up guide.

If your refunds are mailed to you in the form of a check, additional processing, and mailing time will add five to ten additional days for you to receive the check. If you choose to receive a check, you must ensure that the mailing address on your student account is accurate and complete.
