Direct Deposit

The University of Kansas policy REQUIRES all students to sign up for direct deposit so refunds can be electronically deposited into your checking or savings account with your bank. Electronic deposit will allow you to receive your refunds more quickly than through regular mail, and it’s safer too.

How to set up Direct Deposit:

  1. Log into Enroll & Pay
  2. Select the Student Financials tile
  3. Click on Direct Deposit
  4. Click the Enroll in Direct Deposit button
  5. Enter bank routing number, account holder’s name, and back account number. Be sure to enter a bank account number. Do not enter a 16-digit number from your debit card
  6. Select Checking or Savings
  7. Read the agreement information
  8. Press the Submit button at the bottom of the page

  3. Click on Direct Deposit
  4. Verify the bank name and click the arrow to the right of the masked bank account number
  5. For security purposes, verify and enter the bank account number for the previously set up direct deposit information. Please note that this will be a bank account number, not a 16-digit number from your debit card
  6. Click the Enter button
  7. From here you will be able to update your direct deposit information. Please enter a bank account number. Do not a 16-digit number from your debit card
  8. Click the Submit button at the bottom of the page

What would you like to do?

How do I view my bill?

The University of Kansas does not mail paper invoices; instead you will be notified by email that a new eBill has been generated. To obtain your eBill, login to Enroll & Pay, select the Student Financials Tile, select Account Services, and then select Print or View a Bill

What are my payment options?

  • PAY ONLINE through Enroll & Pay with eCheck, Bank Wire or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express)
  • Mail in a personal check, cashier's check or money order to the above address.
  • Pay in person with check or money order. In person payments can be put into the drop box located on the loading dock behind Carruth O'Leary, on the east side of the buliding. Please include your name and KU ID Number, and put your payment inside of an envelope.
  • A payment plan4 through Nelnet is another option. There is a deadline each semester to enroll. Payments must be made by the 1st of each month to Nelnet to avoid late fees. This plan is not for past due balances owed to KU.

How do I sign up for direct deposit?

Sign up through Enroll & Pay by selecting the Student Financials Tile and then clicking the Direct Deposit link from the left-hand menu, OR fill out a Direct Deposit Authorization Form (pdf) and bring it to KU Student Accounts & Receivables.

What if I want to appeal a late fee?

Go to the KU Registrar’s home page and complete an online Fee Petition under the “Tuition & Fees” link

How do I access my 1098-T tax form?

In Enroll & Pay select the Student Financials Tile, select Account Services, and then select 1098-T. The first time you retrieve a 1098-T electronically, you (or your student) need to read the 1098-T consent agreement, then click the green “submit” button.

To Do Checklist
  • Sign up for Direct Deposit. This is University policy. Refunds will be delayed if a direct deposit account is not on file.
  • Set Up Delegates. A delegate will have access to designated information in your account and allows KU to discuss your account with the designated individuals. This could be a parent/guardian, spouse, or another designated individual.
  • Set Up Payment Delegates in TouchNet. This will allow delegates to make payments on your student account.
  • 1098-T Reporting.  Provide your Social Security Number to the Registrar's Office for 1098-T tax purposes. Failure to do so may result in a fee assessed to you by the IRS.
