Direct Deposit

Baylor University will electronically deposit your student financial aid refund in the financial institution of your choice.

Why choose direct deposit?

  • It's convenient.
  • It's faster than a check refund (the only other refund option).

How do I sign up for direct deposit? (US bank account required)

  • Log into
  • Click on Refund Account Set Up 
  • Choose the InstaPay option to receive your funds faster. 
  • Enter your debit card information. 

Direct Deposit is also available for parents who have Parent Plus Loans and are expecting refunds.

If you should change bank accounts, you are responsible for updating the information at

Also, Direct Deposit Enrollment for Payroll (work-study, graduate assistant, faculty/staff) checks is a separate process. You must enroll through both Payroll, if you are employed by Baylor, and Student Accounts if you would like any eligible refunds processed by direct deposit. 

Monitor your student account for confirmation of your deposit. Credit balances will not be refunded until the first official release date of the term.

For more information, call the Student Accounts office at 254-710-2311 or contact the Student Accounts office online.
