Summer Refunds

The College has processed the Summer 2015 - Term 201530 refunds:

1,832 Students have received a Financial Aid Disbursement and or a Credit refund totaling $1,322,665 

The College has wired funds to Higher One, Inc. (Higher One)

Students will receive an email notification, from Higher One, confirming that funds are:

  • available on their SanJacCard Debit/MasterCard (One Account)


  • have been transferred from Higher One to the students personal bank account

If you have had funds transferred to Higher One, but have not activated your SanJacCard, you will need to log into to activate your card and select your preferred method of payment from Higher One, Inc.  Once your preferred method of payment is selected the funds will either be transferred to your SanJacCard (same day) or to your personal bank account after Higher One has processed your request (2-3 business days).

If you have not received your SanJacCard, you may visit any Campus Business Office to request a re-issue.

There is no charge for re-issue related to a card that has not been activated.

If you have already activated your SanJacCard but have lost it, you must log onto and request a new card to be re-issued. You will be assessed a card replacement fee by Higher One.

To determine if you have been issued a Financial Aid Disbursement or Credit refund you may use the Student Account Suite on SOS to view recent account activity.

If the code HONE – San Jac Card Refund Higher One is present you will be receiving your disbursement through Higher One.

If the code RFCR – Refund Credit A/R is present you will be receiving a Credit Refund Check from the College. This is limited to students that are not otherwise eligible for payment through Higher One such as Dual Credit, Early High School Admissions, or undocumented students.

Future Summer Semester disbursements are scheduled for Wednesday of each week with the funds transferred to Higher One on Thursday. There will not be any refunds processed during the week of August 10th. The refund process is final when you receive your email notification from Higher One, Inc. that funds have been transferred to your account or a paper check in the mail.

Some students will be receiving a delinquent account notice from the College Accounts Receivable department related to a balance due on their account that was not allowed to be paid from Federal Title IV funds. The students will be advised that they can use the funds on their SanJac Card to pay any balance due through the College website or at any Campus Business Office.

In order to avoid situations where the College disburses funds to the student and an unpaid balance remains, the student can complete an electronic approval by going online to SOS (

The student will need to respond YES or NO to two questions:

  1.  I authorize San Jacinto College to pay up to $200.00 for my prior year charges with my current Title IV Financial Aid (Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, and/or Direct Loans.) If I have prior year charges that are greater than $200.00, I will pay the balance with other resources
  2.  I authorize San Jacinto College to pay for educationally related charges other than tuition and fees with my current Title IV Financial Aid (Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, and/or Direct Loans.) Charges may include, but are not limited to: library fines, traffic violations, Installment Payment Plan charges, and bookstore.

** Your responses to these questions are valid from this date forward unless you change your response in future aid years. If you wish to change your response to this question within the current aid year, please contact a Campus Business Office. Cancelling this authorization does make it not retroactive. **
