Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is the fastest and most secure way to receive your student account refund. Students and Parent PLUS Loan borrowers can receive their refunds by direct deposit to their bank account within 3 business days, rather than waiting for a paper check to arrive through the mail. Enrollment in direct deposit is fast, easy and secure. Simply log into CCCPay, select the Manage Refund option and enter your name, address, phone number and bank account information.

Both students and Parent PLUS Loan borrowers can sign up for direct deposit.


Log in to your MyColumbia portal, select the MyFinancials tab at the top of the page, then click on CCCPay - Online Billing, Payments and Refunds. 


Your Parent PLUS Loan refund can now be deposited directly to your bank account. You must be signed up as an Authorized Party by your student in order to enroll in direct deposit. For more information about Authorized Parties, click here. 

To enroll, log on to CCCPay via the link in the Authorized Party email notification or use this link.

Select the Manage Refunds option and enter your name, address, phone and bank account information.
