Domestic Students

In order to provide more flexible options for receiving refunds, ESF is has partnered with a company called BankMobile Disbursements to deliver financial aid refunds to our students* starting in Spring 2019. This new refund program will give students the following options to receive their refund:

  • Direct Deposit to an existing account
  • Deposit to a BankMobile Vibe Checking Account

All students will be asked to select a refund delivery preference from the options listed above. Here is what they need to do:

  • Update mailing address

BankMobile will mail a Personal Code to students at their current address on file with ESF. Students can make any changes to this address by logging into their MyESF portal and updating their contact information.

  • Look for the Personal Code

Starting on December 7, 2018, students should begin looking for their Personal Code. It will arrive in a bright green envelope and to your SYR.EDU email address from BankMobile. Students can use either code you receive to select their refund process.

  • Select how they want their money delivered

Once their Personal Code arrives, students should go to RefundSelection.com and enter their code to select how they would like to receive their money. If students select the BankMobile Vibe checking account as their refund choice, they will receive a temporary virtual Debit Mastercard to use until their physical card arrives in the mail.

For more information on BankMobile or any questions related to this new refund process, visit BankMobileDisbursements.com/how-it-works or contact the Bursar's Office in 103 Bray Hall.

*This method is for our domestic students only. International students and Parent Loan refunds will still receive paper checks or e-refunds based on the way you are set-up with the Bursar Office.

International Student and Parents

Refund amounts can be credited electronically to the checking or savings account number you designate on the one of these forms:

The E-Refund form cannot be faxed — we must have the original form, with signature, in order to process the refund.

Most refunds will appear within 48 hours of transmission. If the funds are available we will make every effort to process the refund within 3 days prior to the first day of classes, making it easier to cover other expenses.

This refund process is available for only student/parent financial aid excess — it is not available for payroll or reimbursements from the College (travel or petty cash) or for Student Government association.
