FINANCIAL AID AND TUITION/FEE REFUND DISBURSEMENTS (HigherOne)
East Georgia State College has partnered with HigherOne, a financial services company, for refund disbursements. Financial Aid and tuition/fee refunds are disbursed to EGSC students via a HigherOne MyOne Card. With the MyOneMoney service, refunds will be delivered according to the refund preference chosen by the student – debit card or ACH- electronic transfer.
Even if you do not receive Financial Aid, you must set up a refund preference with HigherOne. You may be eligible to receive a refund from East Georgia State College even though you did not receive Financial Aid. For example, if you paid out-of-pocket and drop a class during the drop/add period, or you withdraw from EGSC, you may be eligible for a refund.
NOTE: The HigherOne MyOne Card will be mailed to the student’s legal address on file with the college. If you provide an invalid address you will not receive your HigherOne MyOne Card. Therefore, you will not receive your refund when you expect it. We encourage ALL students to verify that we have accurate mailing addresses.
New students will receive a HigherOne MyOne Card in the mail. The card will arrive in a bright green envelope with “HigherOne All You” printed on the front. HOLD ON TO THIS CARD!!! When you receive your HigherOne MyOne Card, go online and activate your card. During card activation, you will choose how to receive your refund money. If you want faster access to your funds, simply choose to have your funds deposited directly into your HigherOne account. You are not required to open a HigherOne debit account; however you must make a choice for your preferred method of receiving your refund (HigherOne debit account or ACH - electronic transfer method)
