Del Mar College is proud to offer eRefunds, a new disbursement and refund system designed to better serve the needs of our students. The eRefunds system is offered through TouchNet, and is integrated into the online WebDMC system. eRefunds replaced BankMobile, the system previously used by the College.

eRefunds is a service that Del Mar College has partnered with to process and distribute refunds and disbursements to students. This includes financial aid disbursements, refunds, grants and any other payments students may be owed.  

With eRefunds, you can choose direct deposit into an existing checking or savings account or you can choose a paper check to be mailed to you.  Direct deposit is the quickest and most secure method for issuing and receiving refunds, however if you do not make a refund selection, we will mail you a check to the address we have on file for you.  The choice is yours!

Once again, you will need to choose from these two refund options:

  1. Direct deposit to existing savings or checking account
  2. Paper check mailed to address Del Mar College has on file for the student.

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.
