Direct Deposit Requirement

Berea College requires all student payments to be made via direct deposit. Direct deposits can be made to your bank account regardless of its location.  Many local banks offer free checking accounts to our students along with debit cards and free ATM access.  If you do not have a bank account, preloaded cards are excellent alternatives (two examples of a prepaid card would be Bluebird by American Express and GreenDot by Visa. These are only examples not endorsements of Berea College).

The Labor Program Office can answer questions regarding direct deposit or can assist you in setting it up with your bank.  When setting it up, you will be asked to bring a cancelled check or a statement that clearly shows your bank account information.  Handwritten account numbers are not accepted.
