How to sign up for eRefund
All you need to do is to log on to MyBARC and select the “Click Here to Enroll in eRefund” link found inside the eRefund box.
What do I need to sign up?
To enroll you need two things:
- Your bank routing number
- Your account number
By far the simplest way to get routing and/or account numbers is to look on a paper check.
Please note that your account number is NOT the number on your Debit Card!
What do I do if I don't have a paper check!?
We know that many students to not have paper checks with them. If you turn your debit card over there will be a toll-free phone number on the back of that card. Call that number and tell them you are signing up for Direct Deposit. They will tell you the proper Routing Number and your Account Number.
