Texas State Technical College Important Financial Aid Dates

Important Information for TSTC Students receiving Financial Aid
Texas State Technical College has partnered with BankMobile Disbursements to produce the official student identification card, the TECH OneCard, and to deliver any refund money we may have for you. You will receive a Refund Selection Kit from BankMobile Disbursements, which will include your TECH OneCard and your personal code. This kit will be sent in a bright green envelope to your address on file with TSTC. The refund selection kit allows you to choose your refund option. Your refund selection kit includes TSTC's student identification card, the TECH OneCard. TSTC's student identification card handles all ID card services, such as checking out library books and eating in our TSTC Café.


Refund Options:
The refund selection kit allows you to choose your refund option. Your refund selection kit includes Texas State Technical College’s student identification card, the TECH OneCard.


Money is transferred to another account the same business day BankMobile (formerly HigherOne) receives funds from your school. Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.


If you open a BankMobile Vibe (formerly HigherOne) account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school.

Refund Disbursement Dates:

First-time borrowers:  Direct Loan funds will be credited to the student’s account receivable accounts 30 days after first class day. Refunds will be sent by Student Accounting within 3 business day (after 5 p.m.).
