Hopefully so. Has anyone using discover been prompted for this direct deposit form yet referenced farther up on this page? I would assume we won't need that until they actually process our loan amounts anyways. After poking around on the website, I don't see it anywhere.
The direct deposit form everyone is referencing here is from UVA, not Discover. My question is how did someone find out about it because it is on the HR page? Are we sure this works? Who do we send it to?
Since I'm the one that first posted about the direct deposit option, I guess I should clear it up. I thought I remembered seeing something about a direct deposit option, so I e-mailed financial aid about it and this is what Sandy told me:
With regard to the direct deposit of excess financial aid resources, you will need to complete the direct deposit form required through the University Payroll Dept. This form may be found at http://www.hrs.virginia.edu
. If you have any questions regarding their procedure and applicable deadlines to insure that your fall refund is handled in this manner, please contact them at 434-924-4350. UVA encourages students to utilize the direct deposit option, as it will expedite your receipt of any refund you are entitled to receive. I trust this information is helpful.
I left a message with HR just a min ago to check and make sure that it is the right form and to see where we need to send it, etc. so I'll let you know when I hear back.

It's not that suspect because all direct deposit forms typically go through HR and then the accounts office at the school. I had direct deposit at my undergrad and it was set up through HR, not financial aid
