How to Sign up for Direct Deposit

AUSB offers direct deposit for refunds of any excess financial aid received.

  • Log in to myAntioch (accessed through AUDirect)
  • Go to the Student Menu
  • Under Financial Information, click “Non-Payroll Bank Information
  • Enter your banking information
  • Read and check. I agree to the Terms and Conditions
  • Click Submit at the bottom of the screen to finish up

How does Direct Deposit work?

Once you’re signed up, financial aid refunds and other student non-payroll payments processed through your student account will be electronically deposited to your bank account.

It is your responsibility to maintain up-to-date bank account information. You can add, change, or delete your banking information in AUDirect / myAntioch at any time.

NOTE:  Direct Deposit is available, and students are expected to receive their refund in this format.

All refunds are processed from our central campus in Ohio, and all notifications of completion of direct deposit will be forwarded from that campus. Any refunds not processed via Direct Deposit will be subject to processing delays.

Will this change my payroll Direct Deposit?

No. Contact the Human Resources office to establish or change your payroll direct deposit. This Direct Deposit is for financial aid and other non-payroll refunds; you must register for this direct deposit service separately.

Disbursement Schedule

All Federal Direct are disbursed on the first Monday of each quarter, and any grants, scholarships, Perkins loans, or other outside aid are disbursed after the Add/Drop deadline. Private Alternative student loans are disbursed the week following receipt of the funds from the outside lender. Please see the chart below for specific dates.

IMPORTANT: Please allow 10 days from the date of disbursement for processing of any refunds due to excess financial aid.

Tuition Payment Plan Options

You can arrange with the Student Accounts Office to pay your term over a three-month period. There is a $35 fee, and a payment plan authorization form needs to be on file. To learn more or to establish a plan, please email [email protected] or call 805.962.8179 ext. 5102.
