- Select “Manage My Account/ Make A Payment” to go to your Student Account Dashboard
- Scroll down the overview page and click on “Sign up” at “Sign up for direct deposit refunds!”
- Agree to the electronic Student Refund Authorization Agreement, and click “Continue”
- Complete the information requested
After an eRefund has been generated by Penn State to your financial institution, the process may take up to 3-5 business days before it will appear as a credit in your account. Please refer to your financial institution's policy concerning the availability of these funds.
