If your financial aid award is greater than the amount you owe, you get a financial aid refund. To get your refund, just choose how you want to receive it through the MyRefunds program. PCC partners with BankMobile to deliver your refund.
Choose your refund method
Complete these steps by the first Saturday of the term (see academic calendar). Otherwise, your refund may be delayed by up to two weeks. Check the disbursement schedule to see when money is distributed.
- When it's time to sign up, BankMobile will send an email to your PCC email account.
- Go to the Paying for College tab in MyPCC and click the Manage MyRefunds link. (It's under the financial aid dashboard.)
- Choose how you want to receive your money.

I signed up for the BankMobile Vibe account - how do I access my information?
Go to BankMobileVibe.com and enter your username (email) and password. If you need additional help, please call 855-398-7262.
I signed up for electronic deposit - what happens if I entered my account number incorrectly?
The bank will check to make sure the account number is valid, but they do not verify that the bank account you entered belongs to you!
- If you entered a valid account number that belongs to someone else, the deposit will go to that account. We can try to recover the funds, but there is no guarantee.
- If you entered an invalid account number, the deposit will be returned and an attempt will be made to contact you.
I was mailed a check - where can I cash it?
You may cash your check at your financial institution or a check cashing servicer. Be aware there may be fees associated with check cashing services.
