Students Not Enrolled for Direct Deposit
If you have remaining Residual financial aid after your bill is paid it may be picked up in the Vandal Ballroom located in the Bruce M. Pitman Center (formerly the SUB) on Wednesday, January 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting Thursday January 14, residual checks are available at the Student Accounts office in the Bruce M.

If financial aid covers all fees, tuition, room and board and there are leftover (residual) funds, you can opt for a direct deposit of residual funds to your specified savings or checking account. If you have not signed up for direct deposit, we encourage you to do so. 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).
You may also use residual financial aid and/or scholarships to make deposits on your Vandal Card with your billing statement. Learn more at Student Accounts.
