Are you due a refund?
If you don’t receive financial aid, you still may receive money back from the school in the future. After all, you may drop a class or make an overpayment. Going through this process now can ensure you’ll receive any money owed to you by your school in a timely manner.
If you’re due a refund, you’ll get an email from BankMobile letting you know when it’s been processed.
You can also have refund alerts sent directly to your mobile phone. Signing up is easy:
1. Log in to your profile
2. Under the ‘User Profile’ tab, select ‘Mobile Alerts’
3. Follow the prompts. (Text message fees by your service provider may still apply).
The most common type of money BankMobile disburses to students are funds left over from financial aid awards, loans or grants after tuition has been paid. Students receiving these funds have usually requested this additional support to help with books and living expenses. Other types of money may include reimbursement for tuition overpayment or a dropped class. BankMobile uses the term “refund” but your school may have another name for these funds, such as a disbursement, residual or a stipend.
You will use your Personal Code to make your refund selection at RefundSelection.com.
You will receive your Personal Code in the mail at your primary address on file with your school. Just look for the bright green envelope and please make sure your address is up to date. The personal code is also emailed to you using the email address on file with your school.
First, your school draws funds from the respective loan and/or grant provider and applies it to your student account. Once this information is verified, it is sent to BankMobile. Once the specific refund information is received, it is processed and disbursed according to your selection.
Yes. Just log in to RefundSelection.com and select “refund preferences” from the “Refund” menu option.

BankMobile will send you an email to the email address you entered during refund selection. You can also set-up text alerts or view your refund status online at RefundSelection.com.
