Attention ALL GNTC Students:
Our goal at GNTC is to make sure you have the best student experience possible. We’ve heard your feedback about the financial aid payout and refund process and we have some good news. In order to provide more flexible options for receiving your money, Georgia Northwestern Technical College will be partnering with Higher One® to bring all GNTC students a new method for receiving and managing your money, beginning on June 1, 2015. All students (even if you are not receiving financial aid) will be required to complete a refund delivery preference through Higher One®.
What’s in it for you?
Choices! You have more choices for managing your money, receiving refunds, and financial aid payouts. Our partnership with Higher One® will bring you faster delivery of your money (if eligible) and smarter ways to manage that money.
Why are we doing this?
We heard your concerns about your refunds and payouts. Based on the feedback we got from you, we are making the change to Higher One® to get your money faster.
GNTC Students will have three options for receiving refunds:
- Deposit to a OneAccount, a non-interest bearing, internet-only checking account serviced by Higher One®, Inc.
- Deposit to another account (could be your current bank account if you choose)
- Paper check sent via U.S. mail
All GNTC students will be asked to make a refund delivery preference selection (even if you are not receiving financial aid) from the options listed above.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Update your mailing address
Higher One® will mail a welcome package to the current address you have on file with GNTC. If you’re not sure that GNTC has your current mailing address, please take a moment to visit Student Services to update your address information.
- Look for the green envelope
Starting on May 16, 2015, look for the bright green envelope from Higher One®. It contains your personal code for making your refund preference selection as well as a My One Card. If you select the OneAccount as your refund choice, the card will be activated as a functioning Debit MasterCard® and linked to your OneAccount.
- Visit http://www.myonemoney.com to make your choice
Once your package arrives, go to http://www.myonemoney.com and enter your personal code to get started. Then simply complete the online setup process to customize your preferences, including setting up refund status email updates and mobile alerts.

NOTICE: All students (even if you are not receiving financial aid) will be required to complete a refund delivery preference through Higher One®.
