Refund Information

What happens if I stop attending or withdraw from a class?

Did you know you may owe funds back to the Federal Government, even if you already received a refund? The Government may recalculate your financial aid due to class withdrawal or lack of class attendance. This could result in a balance due to HACC. You may experience financial holds if you owe a balance to HACC. These holds can prevent you from:

  • Registering for classes
  • Receiving your grades
  • Getting copies of your transcript

How can I check my refund status with BankMobile Disbursements?
  1. Log into your profile.
  2. Select "Refund Status & History" in the sub-menu listed under the "Refunds" tab.

You can sign up for mobile text alerts to notify you when HACC disperses your refund. BMTX, Inc. will use your selected refund preference to disperse your refund.


What is the refund process?
  • It takes about 10 business days for HACC to issue refunds with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc.
  • You may see your financial aid and refund disbursement transactions on your HACC account. This does not guarantee the refund process is complete.
  • HACC processes financial transactions behind the scenes. We generate the refund file to send to BMTX, Inc.
  • If you choose to have your financial aid refund deposited to an existing bank account, it typically takes one-two business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account. If you open a BankMobile Vibe checking account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BMTX, Inc. receives funds from your school.
