The fastest and easiest way to get your financial aid and refunds!
You have the choice to receive your refunds to an existing bank account via direct deposit, or to a personalized Visa® prepaid debit card issued by Citi®. This program is intended to give students faster and more convenient access to their financial aid and refunds.
Why electronic payments?
Although you still may choose a paper check, electronic payments will give you:
- Flexible, convenient and safe access to your funds
- No more waiting for a check to arrive in the mail or in line at a bank or check-cashing location
- Payments are loaded electronically and can be used immediately.
The Visa Prepaid Debit Card Benefits
- Purchases anywhere Visa debit is accepted in store, online, or by phone
- Surcharge-free cash withdrawals at over 170 Citibank® ATMs in Maricopa County, including on-campus
- Coverage by Visa’s Zero Liability fraud protection* in the event your card is ever lost or stolen
- Everyone is eligible — a bank account is not required and it does not affect your credit
*Visa’s Zero Liability policy covers U.S.-issued cards only and does not apply to ATM transactions, PIN transactions not processed by Visa, or certain commercial card transactions. Cardholder must notify issuer promptly of any unauthorized use. For additional details visit www.visa.com/security
