Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has partnered with Higher One®, to distribute all student refunds. This change will offer more options including direct deposit so that you can receive your student refunds faster.
By now you should have received a green envelope in the mail containing your MGCCC Bulldog Card. Don’t throw this away; you will need it to make your refund delivery selection! Even if you are not currently receiving financial aid, all students enrolled in credit courses (with a few exceptions) will receive this mailer and card.
How do you make the refund delivery selection?
Once you receive your card, simply log into the website and choose from the three refund delivery options:
- Direct Deposit into your current bank account
- Direct Deposit into a new HigherOne checking account
- Paper Check
What is the difference in the three options?
Direct Deposit into your current bank account- money in two to three business days, no waiting on mail delivery.
Same business day deposit to a Higher One checking account- money deposited to the account the same business day funds are released by the college.
Paper check- money in five to seven business days.
What do you need to do now?
Make sure we have your current mailing address! Update on Web Services or visit your campus Admissions office.
Then, be on the lookout for the bright green envelope from Higher One! Once it arrives, you’ll simply use the card inside to let us know how you’d like to receive your money. Just choose the option that best fits you… and make a selection as soon as your new card arrives! Remember, even if you are not currently expecting a refund, we may have money for you in the future, so don’t wait.
Do you have to get your refund by Direct Deposit?
No, you can continue to receive a paper check by mail if you want. However, those who do want to get their funds faster and avoid standing in lines at the bank to make deposits will now have the option to direct deposit.
What is this going to cost you?
There is no fee for the service to our students. If you choose to open a HigherOne checking account, you should avoid using the MGCCC Bulldog card as a debit card (entering PIN at purchase). Use it as credit (swipe and sign) and you will not incur any fees. Go to www.MyOneMoney.com and click on the fee schedule at the bottom of the page for more information about fees associated with a HigherOne Account. The bottom line is that you do not have to incur any fees.
