Getting Your Check

Aid will not disburse unless all outstanding requirements show as complete on MyAwards.  Once you have completed all necessary requirements, returned all necessary documents to the School of Law Financial Aid Office and fees have been assessed, your account will be updated.  All financial aid funds are disbursed by Student Accounting.  You are encouraged to enroll in Direct Deposit to avoid the need to travel across campus and possible wait time.

Direct Deposit

Payments made to students, through Banner, are eligible for direct deposit service. Interested students can sign up for this service online using their UCD Login ID and Kerberos password.

Students signed up for Direct Deposit will receive e-mail notification when funds are deposited into your account.

Payment Notifications

All notifications to direct deposit recipients are made via e-mail. When the direct deposit participant establishes the service, they are asked to provide an e-mail address. Any changes made to their service, or payments made to their account, will generate an e-mail notification. Participants can sign up without an e-mail address, but they will not receive any notifications; therefore, it is strongly recommended that an e-mail address be provided. Payment notifications do not contain any sensitive information. Notifications of payment will simply direct the participant to login to the web site,, to get the details of the transaction. Note: there will be no printed payment confirmation (such as the Sure-Pay statement) sent to the recipient.
