​​​​​​​​Disbursement Information

BankMobile will mail instructions on how to set up your disbursement method, once you have enrolled for classes and paid all fees. If you received a HigherOne card last year, you do not need to update your account.  Once you receive your BankMobile letter, you'll need to use the personal code provided to create your BankMobile account.  Once your account has been created, you will select your payment option for enrollment fee refunds and financial aid disbursements.

Below are the available chocies in selecting your refund/disbursement method:

  • Electronic Deposit (ACH) into your personal checking or savings account
  • Open a BankMobile account
  • Paper check

 

If you open a BankMobile account, avoid fees by using these methods:

  • BankMobile ATM on campus for withdrawals
  • Using your debit card with a swipe and sign option at merchants (select credit when checking out and sign your name) do not use the PIN option as this may incur fees.
  • BankMobile fees: Fee Schedule

You can change your method of payment at any time - just log into your BankMobile account and make the changes.

​For all Pell Grant eligible students who have completed their files and have been awarded and the awards have been accepted, the first 50% Pell Grant disbursement (first Friday of the term) is for books and supplies. If you have questions regarding this disbursement, please contact your campus financial aid office.
