Effective December 5, 2021, Student Accounts will no longer be processing refunds through our previous deposit process. Instead, we have partnered with Nelnet to allow for a quicker, safer setup process and also giving the option to have your refund loaded to a reloadable debit card.
CURRENT DIRECT DEPOSIT USERS: Please note, you will need to activate your direct deposit again through Nelnet. You will NO LONGER NEED to provide the documentation that was required with the old process.
NEW USERS: the sign-up is also quick and simple.
We also know you want your money fast, so SUNY Buffalo State College is not only offering you an easy and convenient way to receive your refund, but is cutting unreasonable fees in the process. You choose how to receive your refund.
Quick and easy. Simply provide bank account information and we will deposit funds directly into the account.
Reloadable Debit Card
Nelnet can disburse a refund to any existing reloadable debit card.
Fill in the necessary information.
Your refund will then be sent using the option you selected.
