Incoming Wire Transfers/ACH Instructions

There are two methods for bank-to-bank electronic payments: 1) Wire Transfers, used for all international transfers and some domestic US transfers under specific instruction and 2) Automated Clearing House (ACH) for electronic payments within the United States. The routing number to identify our bank will differ depending on which payment method is used.

Campus departments expecting to receive an electronic payment should request the sender alert them when a payment is being sent. The campus department should then follow the instructions for claiming the payment when it is received in our bank account.

If the sender requires that an ACH authorization form be completed, contact for assistance.

Funds intended for UC Berkeley Foundation must be directed to the Foundation's bank account. For assistance with determining if a gift is for the Regents or Foundation, contact your unit's fundraising staff or UDAR Donor and Gift Services.
