Receiving your refund

Montco has partnered with TouchNet eRefunds PLUS to provide access to an optional direct deposit account to allow easier access to refunds from your financial aid disbursements, account adjustments and more.

Students that have applied and maintain eligibility for financial aid will receive a refund for any credit balance after all tuition and fees have been paid by said financial aid for the current semester.

Note: Once you have met all of the requirements for disbursement, your financial aid funds will be electronically sent to your student account, which usually occurs within 30-45 days from the start of the semester. If you are enrolled in 7-week courses, some financial aid funds may not disburse until you begin the 2nd half of the semester. Once your bill has been paid in full, if your financial aid exceeds the total amount billed, you will be issued a refund within 14 days. The issuance of fall refunds usually begins in mid-October and spring refunds at the end of February.

Refund Disbursement

To receive your refund quickly, it is recommended that you select a direct deposit refund preference.

  • Direct deposit to a bank account. Money is transferred to a bank account of your choice, which is typically faster than waiting for a paper check.

You can change your refund preference at any time. Please be advised that if you do not elect an option, your refund will be issued as a check and mailed to the home address on file with the College. Refunds will be disbursed by TouchNet partner, Heartland/ECSI. Please note that Credit/Debit card payments are refunded back to card used.
