Financial Aid Disbursement

How Funds are Disbursed

All students are required to sign-up for Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) for their Federal Direct (Stafford) and Grad PLUS and University funds. Failure to sign-up may result in the delays and inconveniences associated with mailing.

To complete this EFT process you must do two things:

  1. Direct (Stafford)/Graduate PLUS Direct Deposit (EFT)
  2. Additionally, you must complete a Student Direct Deposit Request Form.
Direct Deposit of Funds

Direct deposit of financial aid to your bank account is available to all financial aid, including Direct (Stafford) and Graduate Plus Loans! Note: We recommend choosing the bank account EFT option to receive funds. Choosing the debit card option will involve incurring additional costs if you intend to use the card to pay your UCSF tuition/fee balance.
