Aid disbursements and refunds

All financial aid refunds are disbursed through our partner BankMobile, a financial services company serving higher education. With this refund disbursement process you will have the ability to access your refund. You will be mailed a refund selection kit and an email to access your personal code. Your personal code is important and will be used to validate your identity.

Funds Availability

Spring Quarter 2017:
  • Grant and loan funds are available beginning Friday, March 31st.

You must activate your Bank Mobile account and select one of the following delivery options at

  1. Direct deposit to an existing financial account, usually available within 2-3 days after funds are initiated at Shoreline or,
