Refunds

To be eligible to receive a refund, students must officially drop a credit class before the deadline.

To view your tuition refund and withdraw deadlines, visit My Tuition Refund and Withdraw Deadlines in myHCC.

For more information on refund policies and dates, visit Refund Policies and Dates.

Refund Method

Paid by credit card – Balances paid by credit card through myHCC or directly to the cashier's office are refunded back to the card originally charged. This could change depending on if you received financial aid.

Paid by NelNet payment plan, cash or check – The college has partnered with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution powered by BMTX, Inc, to provide electronic refund services to students. Visit BankMobile for more information.

Financial aid recipient – The college has partnered with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution powered by BMTX, Inc, to provide electronic refund services to students. Visit BankMobile for more information. We recommend consulting the Financial Aid Office regarding any rules and regulations that may impact your award prior to dropping any classes. This is important as it may affect your financial aid package and cause you to owe money back to the college.

If you have any outstanding debt to the college, your refund(s) are first automatically applied to the payment of the debt.

HCC allows students to use a credit balance on their account to apply towards a future term. Please contact the cashier’s office for further details.

BankMobile FAQs

  • What kind of money might I receive?

    The most common type of money we disburse to students are funds left over from financial aid awards, loans or grants after tuition has been paid. Students receiving these funds have usually requested this additional support to help with books and living expenses. Other types of money may include reimbursement for tuition overpayment or a dropped class.

  • Why am I getting a Personal Code?

    You will use your Personal Code to make your refund selection at www.RefundSelection.com.

  • How will I get a Personal Code?

    There are multiple ways you can get a code:

    • MAIL: Look out for the green envelope. Your code will be sent to the address you have on file with HCC.
    • EMAIL: BankMobile will send you an email with your code.

    You may use any personal code assigned to you to make your refund preference selection.

  • Can I change my refund preference for receiving money?

    Yes. Just log in to www.RefundSelection.com and select “refund preferences” from the “Refund” menu option. Once on the page, simply make your new selection and click the “Update Preference” button to complete the process. Be aware that your new selection will only affect future money you receive.

  • What are my refund options?

    Deposit to an Existing Account - Money is transferred to another account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from HCC. Typically, it takes 1-2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account. This can be a Checking or Savings account
