BruinDirect is a fast, secure process to deposit financial aid refunds directly to a student’s bank account.

Direct deposit of financial aid refunds is mandated by federal regulation. After financial aid is disbursed to cover posted charges (such as tuition, UCSHIP, etc.), remaining funds are deposited to the student’s designated bank account. An e-mail notice is sent when a deposit is made.

Students can enroll, manage accounts, and update banking information in BruinDirect through BruinBill. BruinDirect is not available to students who use a nonelectronic lender for a private loan.
