New eCheck/eRefund Payment Validation Process

If you do not use your checking account to make electronic payments to JSU, this rule will not apply to you and no further action is needed.

Prenoting Process for Making Payments by Electronic Check or Receiving Refunds by Direct Deposit
The National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) has issued a rule requiring that all ACH web debits be validated before they are used to make a payment. JSU is now required to conduct a prenoting process, during this process we will send a zero-dollar transaction file to the bank to validate if your account is active. 

  • If you have already set up direct deposit for e-Refunds through the Student Accounts Website and this is the same checking account you use to make payments your account has already been validated, no further action is needed. 
  • If you make payments using your checking account and you have not saved the checking account as a Saved Payment Method and have not set up direct deposit via your Student Accounts Website, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible to avoid delays when it is time to make payments on your account. 
  • If you have assigned someone as an authorized user on your account to make check payments, the checking account will need to be set up under the authorized user tab within the Student Accounts Website.  

The validation process can take 3-5 business days. You will not be able to make payments by electronic check, set up a payment plan by electronic check or receive electronic refunds (eRefunds) using your checking account until your account has been validated.  The prenote process will notify you if your payment method cannot be validated. The easiest way to validate your checking account ahead of time is to set up your payment profile on the Student Account website.  This process does not apply to credit/debit cards.
