Changes coming to refund procedures

June 21, 2012

Beginning in July, A-B Tech will be partnering with Higher One®, to bring a new method for receiving your refunds and managing money to all A-B Tech students­­— the A-B Tech Access Card.

What does this mean for students?

It means more choices for managing your money and receiving Financial Aid refunds! Our partnership with Higher One ensures faster delivery of the refund money we may have for you; and smarter ways to manage that money.

Why are we making this change?

We’ve made the switch to Higher One’s services to simplify your life and your finances; and to free up our 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.

So who is Higher One?

Higher One is a company started by three college students who believed in a better way to help students receive and manage money. Learn more at www.HigherOne.com/Higher101

What do students need to do?

Make sure we have your current mailing address!  Here’s how:

  • Log into your Student WebAdvisor account.
  • Under User, click on Verify/Change My Contact Information.
  • Enter the correct contact information including mailing address and phone number.
  • Check by "I hereby verify that the contact information displayed above is correct."
  • Click on Submit
  • Be sure to do this immediately to prevent delays in receiving your refund. 

Be sure to update your address with the US Postal service as well to avoid delays. 

Then, beginning July 6, 2012 look for the bright green envelope from Higher One! Once it arrives, you’ll simply use the card inside to let us know how you’d like to receive your money. Just choose the option that best fits you…and be sure to get started as soon as it arrives! Remember, even if you are not currently expecting a refund, we may have money for you in the future, so don’t wait.
