For many years, students have complained about waiting for their refund checks to arrive via the mail. The new service will provide students with two options for how they receive refunds. Students may choose to open a free checking account and activate the debit card or to authorize a direct deposit to another banking institution.
The Higher One program was chosen after checking references with other institutions. This program has been very successful for other universities, students and parents. In short, Higher One is a reputable vendor with a proven track record to provide refund choices to SJC students.
