Aid disbursements and refunds

All financial aid refunds are disbursed through our partner BankMobile, a financial services company serving higher education. With this refund disbursement process you will have the ability to access your refund. You will be mailed a refund selection kit and an email to access your personal code. Your personal code is important and will be used to validate your identity.

Funds Availability

Spring Quarter 2018:
  • Grant and loan funds will be available beginning Monday, April 2nd.

You must select your refund preference at BankMobile:

  1. Direct deposit to an existing financial account. Money is transferred to another account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from the college. Typically, it takes 1-2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
  2. Electronic deposit to a BankMobile Vibe account (upon identify verification). Funds are deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from the college.
  3. Paper check, delivered by USPS. The check is mailed the same business day BankMobile receives the funds from the college, provided the receipt is within daily cutoff times. Typically, it takes 5-7 business days for the check to arrive, depending on USPS First Class delivery timeframes.

If you do not select a refund delivery preference a paper check will be sent through U.S. Mail, which could result in a delay of approximately 3 weeks after aid disbursement.

Funds are available if students:

  • Are awarded financial aid (award notifications are generally sent to student email accounts)
  • Are making the required academic progress
  • Registered for the correct number of credits
  • Do not have a block on their account (i.e., parking fine)
