Refund Direct Deposit Process

Direct deposit can be completed by visiting the Catalyst student portal ( Once signed into Catalyst, go to the “My Finances” tile, and then click on “Billing Information” on the left-hand side of the screen.  Select “Direct Deposit Enrollment” and follow the prompts.

Parents who have refunds coming from Federal Parent PLUS Loans should coordinate with their student to obtain Delegated Access.  Once complete, the parent can sign up for direct deposit in Catalyst by clicking on the “Delegated Access” tile and then “Manage Bank Account”.  All refunds NOT coming from a parent plus loan will be refunded to the bank listed under the student account.

Note for Employees:  Faculty, staff or student workers will automatically have their payroll bank account used for student refunds. If you need to update or add a bank account, you will be directed to the UCFlex Employee Self-Service Portal.
