  • The first log in is for students.
  • The second log in is for family and friends. Family or friends need their student's 9-digit ID number (see example photo below). The ID number is the same as the "account number" on the student's billing statement with 2 zero preceding zeros added.
    Example: if the account number is 1234567 the ID number will be 001234567.
  • Students can use the AC Deposits website to send an email to family or friends requesting a deposit. The email will include a link to the AC Deposits website and will not require knowing the student's ID number.

    Currently the link in the email will not work correctly for iOS devices such as iPhones or iPads. It will work correctly for other smart phones or tables such as Android or Microsoft devices.Those using iOS devices should use the AC Deposits website and will need to know the student's 9-digit  ID number.
