Signing up for direct deposit is mandatory in order to receive any refunds.
Student refunds are significantly delayed if they do not register for direct deposit. The delay can be upwards of 60 days. It is imperative you sign up for direct deposit, and it is an easy 3-minute process.
After logging in to your eSIS account on your Student Center under the Finances section, in the middle of the page, there is a blue link that labeled "Direct Deposit Signup". Please click this link. It will take you to the third party vendor (ECSI) that handles refunds for UWRF. The client code should auto populate as REF-J1. Your account id is the first two letters of your last name plus your w number including the w. (Example last name Smith with a w number of w3090000 would have an account id of smw3090000) Then click on the lost password above the Log in. We recommend opening up another Internet tab and opening up your UWRF e-mail account. You should get an e-mail with a temporary password from firstname.lastname@example.org Please go back to the page that populated as soon as you click lost password. Fill in the client code REF-J1 and your account id and the temporary password that was emailed to you from ECSI. You will be prompted to set up your own password as the password that is emailed to you is a onetime use password. Then you should be able to sign up for direct deposit.
