University Of Dayton Stock Transfer Information

If your broker or banker holds your securities, choose one of these two ways to transfer the stock.

Electronic (DTC) transfer

Ask your financial representative to transfer the stock via DTC. This is a quick and efficient form of transfer. Send DTC to:

Merrill Lynch DTC #8862.
Account Name: University of Dayton.
Account No.: 5SE-04859.

Your representative can phone UD's Merrill Lynch contact in Dayton at 937-847-4079. The "date of the gift" will be the date that the stock is received in UD's account at Merrill Lynch. The value for your gift will be the average of the high price and the low price of the stock on the day that it is sold.

Transfer to a UD account at your brokerage.

If your financial representative has an existing account for UD, instruct him or her to transfer the shares of stock you plan to give to that account. Ask your representative to phone Carla Barnett of UD's Advancement Division at 937-229-3217 before this transfer is made so we can look for the stock in our account when it arrives.
