Direct Deposit


Students are expected to provide information in order to have refunds directly deposited to their bank account. If you already have a bank account, launch STARS, select Direct Deposit Authorization from the menu, and complete the information listed for University Refunds.

For those without a bank account, the University has negotiated arrangements with two local banks to offer "no cost" options, which waive the initial minimum balance requirement and credit check. Citizens, a Division of Morton Community Bank offers a checking or savings account with an ATM card, and First Bankers Trust Company offers a savings account with an ATM card.  In order to take advantage of one of these services, you will need to take your WIU ID to one of their main bank locations and ask for the WIU special account.

Once you have established an account, please remember to complete the Direct Deposit Authorization on STARS.

Parent Borrowers

Credit balances from Federal Direct Parents Loan for Undergraduate Studies (PLUS) loans are sent to the parent borrower unless the borrower has indicated on the Federal Direct PLUS loan request that the credit balances should go to the student.  Parents wishing to have credit balances automatically deposited to their account may complete the Direct Deposit Authorization-Parent Borrower form.  Please mail this form to the address indicated on the form or fax to 309-298-2811. Parents wishing to cover all charges on the student's account may sign an authorization statement.


Beginning July 1, 2007, employees will begin receiving travel and miscellaneous expense reimbursements via direct deposit. If information is not provided for the direct deposit of WIU Payments/Refunds, the bank information listed as Account 1 on payroll records will be used. To change bank information, select the Direct Deposit Authorization Screen (DDAS) from the WIUP main menu. Bank information may also be changed on STARS by selecting Direct Deposit Authorization from the main menu.
