How to Sign Up for Direct Deposit in my.SDSU

Direct deposit is an easy way to transfer funds directly to a student's bank account. It is also how all financial aid disbursements (grants, loans, scholarships) are paid to a student.

Note: The money is first applied to pay for your tuition and fees, housing, etc. Then, if any funds remain, they are deposited into your account.

In my.SDSU, this process is very simple and requires students to log in to their my.SDSU account and use the Financial Account tile to sign up for direct deposit.

  1. Log in to my.SDSU and select the Financial Account tile.
