Financial aid is first used to pay for University of Idaho charges (credit and lab fees, etc.). If financial aid has not paid all University of Idaho charges, you must make arrangements with Student Accounts to pay the remaining balance. If financial aid has paid all University of Idaho charges and there are leftover funds (residual funds), you can opt for a direct deposit to your specified savings or checking account. You also may use residual financial aid and/or scholarships to make deposits on your University of Idaho Vandal Card with your billing statement.
Initial direct deposits to bank accounts are disbursed electronically, usually on the Friday before the semester begins. Checks may be picked up from our CDA office during the first week of classes if you have not selected direct deposit for the current academic year.
All students are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit of their residual financial aid to their bank accounts. Residual financial aid is the aid that is left over after the billing statement has been paid in full. It is particularly important for students who are not on the Moscow campus (those at off-campus sites, on national student exchange or study abroad) to arrange for direct deposit each academic year. The alternative is to make arrangements to have a check mailed.
To sign up for direct deposit of financial aid:
- Go to www.vandalweb.uidaho.edu
- Log in with your ID and PIN
- Go to the “Student Account Information” menu
- Go to the “Direct Deposit Information” menu
- Have your bank account and routing numbers ready
