I thought I already signed up for direct deposit, why do I have to do it again?

If your financial aid exceeds your charges, or your account is overpaid, you may be eligible for a refund, available after registration, which can be used for your out-of-pocket expenses, such as books and supplies. You must sign up for direct deposit in MITPay before requesting these funds.

To be paid for employment at MIT you must also sign up for Payroll Direct Deposit in Atlas. This direct deposit form is in a separate system from MITPay and you must fill out both to receive both.
