Students have until July 25 to update their personal information through ApacheAcces to help the college launch a new refund distribution service in the fall.
Students who update their information will also be entered into a drawing for a $50 iTunes gift card.
June 30 the college teamed up with Higher One, a financial services and paymeny company, to help students get refunded money in a more efficient manner.
“We feel confident Higher One can help us meet our goals for providing quality service to our students,” said TJC Controller Carol Hutson. “Higher One’s reputation for outstanding products and services sets them apart from other options we considered.”
The college is asking students to review their information on file to make sure their address is correct. Students will receive a card that will direct them to a website to select a delivery method for a refund.
The three options of delivery include a direct deposit to a “OneAccount”, another bank chosen by the student, or a mailed check. Higher One’s “OneAccount” is an FDIC-Insured account offered to students with no minimum balance, and no monthly fee.
Hutson said this new program will give students access to refunds in a safer, more efficient manner while skipping those long lines.
TJC and Higher One will begin their new reimbursement program at the start of the Fall 2008 semester.
