KCTCS now offers you the option of receiving your financial aid and tuition refunds by direct deposit through the KCTCS Easy Refund Program. Of course you still have the option of having your refund sent to your bank account or of receiving a paper check.
The KCTCS Easy Refund Program is in partnership with Higher One, a financial services and payment company focused exclusively on higher education, to distribute financial aid and tuition refunds to students. Higher One will offer a OneAccount checking account to each student. The OneAccount is optional and requires no minimum balance, no monthly fee and is FDIC insured.
Bank cards will be mailed to your home address on file. The card and instructions in the mailing provide you with information necessary to logon to KCTCSDebitCard.com to activate your refund preference. You have a choice to receive refunds due you by an ACH transfer to an existing bank account, by paper check, or by activating the bank card by opening a bank account through Higher One. Note: You must activate your refund preference to receive timely distributions of refunds due you.
