• How Do I Get My Refund?

    All tuition and fee refunds and financial aid will be issued to students based on your refund preference.  All students are mailed a refund selection kit with instructions on choosing how they want to receive financial aid or course refunds.  The refund selection kit is mailed to the address on file with the Office of Admissions and Registrar. If the College does not have the student's correct address on file, refunds and financial aid disbursements will be delayed. More information about choosing a refund preference is available at www.refundselection.com.

    Refund Schedule

    The refund schedule on this page applies to students who drop courses or withdraw from Del Mar completely on or after the first class day. The schedule applies to all day and evening credit courses.

    Prior to the census day, a student who drops a course or courses and then adds the same number of semester hours back to his/her schedule within the same transaction is entitled to an even exchange, with no drop penalty or additional tuition changed. Students will pay applicable tuition and fees for any hours added after the first day of classes and are subject to the refund schedule listed for hours dropped after the semester starts.

    Two refund formulas exist for determining the amount of the refund: Del Mar College's Refund Schedule and the "Return of Title IV Aid" Formula derived from the 1998 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. The Federal Formula is applicable to any student receiving Federal Financial Aid, excluding College work-study, who withdraws on or before completing 60% of the semester.

    The Federal Formula provides a return of Title IV Aid if the student has received or will receive Federal Financial Aid in the form of a PELL Grant, Supplemental Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), LEAPP Grant, Federal Direct Student or PLUS Loan and withdraws on or before completing 60% of the semester. The percentage of the refund is equal to the number of calendar days remaining in the semester divided by the number of calendar days in the semester.

    If any refund remains after the return of Title IV Aid, the refund will be used to repay Del Mar College funds, state funds, other sources and the student in proportion to the amount paid by each nonfederal source as long as there was not an unpaid balance due at the time of withdrawal. If there was an unpaid balance, then all aid sources will be repaid before any refund is paid to the student.

    HigherOne/BankMobile Disbursements FAQ


    What Happened to Higher One?

    Who is BankMobile Disbursements? >
    Established in 201.4, BankMobile Disbursements is a division of Customers Bank. Customers Bank has worked very closely with Higher One for more than two years as a bank partner, and is highly knowledgeable about our current business processes and campus needs.

    For existing customers, the same refund method you have with Higher One will be used with BankMobile Disbursements.
