Direct Deposit for Refunds

Consider Signing Up For Direct Deposit


It's faster -- funds are available in your bank before any checks are issued.

It's easier -- you don't have to make a trip to the bank to cash the check.

It's safer -- direct deposits rarely get lost in processing.

Sign up is easy using student e-Services. Register once and receive the benefits every time an amount is distributed to you from Normandale Community College. With direct deposit all student payroll checks, refunds, and financial aid overage amounts are automatically deposited to your specified bank account using electronic funds transfer. Students who have signed up for direct deposit will no longer be issued paper checks.

We have provided a secure and encrypted web form which will submit your bank account information to the Normandale Business Office. The link is listed at the bottom of this page. The information you provide will not be disclosed to anyone outside the Normandale Business Office and the Bank.

You will need your bank routing number and account number. You can find this information on the bottom of your check or your savings deposit slip.

Financial Aid


The direct deposit program allows a student to have their financial aid (less payment for outstanding charges) direct deposited into their designated bank account. The students checking/savings account will be credited three to four business days, after a scheduled disbursement day. Direct deposits will not occur on banking holidays and weekends.

Beginning the third week of the semester disbursements will be made every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you participate in the financial aid deposit program your tuition refunds will also be direct deposited, unless you paid your tuition online with a credit card.

Work Study


Student payroll funds are direct deposited on the second Friday following the Tuesday that timesheets are due. Students who participate in on-campus employment are strongly encouraged to have their payroll funds direct deposited.

Other important considerations


Verifying your deposit

Always verify that funds scheduled to be directly deposited in your bank account are posted by your financial institution before entering into transactions that authorize the withdrawal of those funds.

Changing Banks or Bank Accounts

If you wish to change your bank or your account number, simply go online and select "Change".

Bank Account Information Verification

Because your bank account information must be verified, please allow two weeks for your direct deposit to become effective.
