WHO IS HIGHER ONE?

Higher One is a company started in 2000 by three college students who believed in a better way to help students receive and manage money. Since the beginning, we've strived to offer more choices and better value to those in school and beyond.

In addition to faster ways to receive refunds from your college/university, we also offer innovative checking account choices and a wealth of great features designed to make your life easier.

WHEN WILL I GET MY REFUND?i building icon

Higher One does not know when each individual person will be receiving their refund until your school sends us a refund file containing your information. We receive refund information from schools nationwide and every college/university disburses different amounts of money to a different number of students every time. The best way to find when your specific refund might come is to contact your college/university's Financial Aid or Business Office.

You can also sign up for Mobile Alerts to be notified when your refund has been disbursed.

WHY DID MY COLLEGE / UNIVERSITY PARTNER WITH HIGHER ONE?

Your school made the switch to Higher One's services to simplify your life and your finances; and to free up their administrative staff so they have more time to focus on serving you... the student. Not to mention (even though we already have), Higher One offers smarter choices for refund delivery and a great variety of accounts designed with you in mind.
