Mobile Deposit

That camera on your phone? It can be used for something other than selfies. You can deposit most checks by downloading an app and then taking a picture of the front and back of your check. Within seconds, you'll receive confirmation that your transaction was successful. It's that easy! Let's get started.
  1. Download the Education First app from the iTunes or Google Play for your iPhone or Android smartphone.
  2. Use your built-in camera to take a picture of the front and back of your check. Don't worry, the Mobile Deposit software has an Image Quality Assessment tool that identifies any problems with the check image. If a problem is detected, you'll be asked to retake the photo.
  3. Hold on to the check for 7 days or until you have received confirmation of deposit.
