ACH / Direct Deposit

Electronic Payment Information and Instructions

College of the desert has implemented automated invoice payments. This process allows you the opportunity to receive payments by Automated Clearing House (ACH) - Direct Deposit instead of paper checks.  Using this ACH process, our payment to you will be deposited directly into a checking account specified by you.  Our goal is to streamline our payment process while allowing you to receive payments quicker than our current check process.  We have partnered with FIS Integrated Payables (FIS-IP) to offer these electronic payments to you. FIS-IP is a third-party company that has been vetted by RCOE (Riverside County Office of Education).
