Tip: Get Your Financial Aid Refund Faster

Use direct deposit to deposit financial aid funds into your CommonWealth One Account. Use our routing number 256078365 and your account number when you complete your Higher One* application forms.

Here is a handy checklist of items you need to have to open an account at our branch:

  • A valid photo I.D. or JAC card – we need to know that it’s really YOU!
  • Your Social Security card (or a copy) 
  • If you’re under 18 and opening your account in person, a parent or joint owner must be on your account, and all parties on the account must be present to sign paperwork each with valid IDs.
