​Disbursement Information

Higher One has begun mailing access cards to Coast College students; if, you received a card last year, you will not receive another card unless your card has expired. When you receive your access card, you'll need to use the card to select your payment options for enrollment fee refunds and financial aid disbursements. There are free methods for you to receive your funds without opening a Higher One banking account:

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

    If you open a Higher One account, avoid fees by using these methods:
  • Higher One 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.

Check here for the Higher One fees before you make your selection: Fee Schedule

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

If you have questions, please attend a Higher One workshop on your campus. Check with the campus financial aid office for dates/times of the workshops.

All awards must be "accepted" through your online financial aid account before awards can be disbursed. If you need assistance with this process, please visit your campus financial aid office.
