The College provides students with a direct deposit option for student refunds. An individual's election to participate in the program allows the College to deposit funds directly into an enrollee's specified checking account instead of processing a paper check. This election results in a reduction of paper processed by the college and will save the college enrollee time and money related to the processing, distribution and deposit of paper checks.
As part of the enrollment process, the enrollee will disclose in the online form banking information to include the bank routing number and checking account number. Once entered, the routing number and account number will be verified by a third party via secure transmission. The campus will provide the third party with only the bank routing number and account number and no personally identifying information will be provided. The third party will verify only the existence of the specified bank account number at the bank whose routing number is provided. The third party does not validate ownership of the bank account since we are not providing them any information that could identify the enrollee. Therefore, when completing the E-Refund request the enrollee will be asked to enter the bank account number twice as an assurance that the number is entered correctly.
Enrollees will be required to agree to the Terms and Conditions of the E-Refund program when submitting as well as changing banking information.
By enrolling in the program, an enrollee grants the College authority to credit refunds to the enrollee's bank account. Enrollment further authorizes the College to debit the enrollee's account only in a situation where a prior credit was made in error. In either case, Student Billing will contact the enrollee by phone and/or email notifying them of the action to be taken.
An e-refund authorization will remain in effect until the enrollee cancels the authorization by returning to the direct deposit authorization request form and selecting the remove button. The e-refund authorization request form can also be used to change bank account information.
Enrollees will be notified of every direct deposit transaction via WITC student e-mail. Deposits should be posted to enrollee bank accounts within three business day of the funds being posted to the student's account. Student Billing should be contacted in the event that an e-refund transaction has not posted to the enrollee's bank account within 3 business days of notification.
The line of numbers and special symbols at the bottom of one of your personal checks contains the information you need to make your direct deposit election.
