Note: The IFT reference number from the payment instructions must be included in the transfer from your bank to be credited to your student account.

Once permission is granted, the authorization remains in place indefinitely unless the student withdraws it. To withdraw permission, students should contact the Student Services Center. Permission cannot be withdrawn directly via Axess.
