Each year Student Business Services (SBS) conducts a Direct Deposit Campaign and Contest to encourage and educate UC San Diego students on the benefits of direct deposit. Direct deposit is the safe, secure, and environmentally friendly method of refunding money to students. 90% of our students are refunded via direct deposit as opposed to receiving paper checks.

In collaboration with  UC San Diego Sustainability, SBS randomly selected three students as grand prize winners of the Direct Deposit Contest. The student’s names were randomly selected from the currently enrolled direct deposit recipients.

On November 9, Cheryl Ross, Controller and Assistant Vice Chancellor of Business & Financial Services and Sara McKinstry, Sustainability Manager, presented Absaala Joseph, Daniel Rey, and Sara Goico with a $100 Visa gift cards. In addition to the grand prizes winners, four UC San Diego students won a set of San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park tickets.

Congratulations to the winners!
