Enrolling in eRefund

Setting up a direct deposit refund allows any future refunds to be electronically deposited into an account you specify. This allows you to receive your refund quickly, since you do not have to wait for a paper check.

    • Note: At present, Banner does not use Downstate NetID.
  • Select Student Billing. Select the term and click submit
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the PROCEED button
    • Note: If the Proceed button is not present, click on the Statement and Payment History link and then on the Payment Portal link.
