WSCC offers Direct Deposit for financial aid and institutional refunds.
Disbursed means WSCC uploads direct deposit file to WSCC's bank and checks are printed and mailed. All recipients receive an email notification via STARmail when their refund is processed.
Financial Aid refunds are only processed for recipients who meet all financial aid eligibility requirements including attendance. Students must attend all classes or be subject to federal repayment policies.
Refunds (financial aid and institutional) are normally processed every Tuesday and Thursday and disbursed every Wednesday and Friday once a semester begins.
Students may view their attendance status at the beginning of the semester through StarNET.
Students may currently "create a refund profile" through StarNET to receive their refund electronically (direct deposit).
To create a refund profile:
At the time when a check cycle is processed, students who have created a refund profile will have their refunds processed electronically. For students who have not created a refund profile, their refund will be issued in a paper check and mailed to their permanent home address on file in Admissions. Once a refund has been processed (electronically or check), students are notified electronically through STARmail (not eLearn). Students are encouraged to monitor their STARmail regularly.
Upon notification of the return, WSCC will issue the refund in the form of a paper check in the next check cycle and mail it to the student's permanent home address. In addition, students will be notified through StarMAIL if their electronic refund is returned for any reason. The student must correct the account information in their refund profile before future refunds may be direct deposited. WSCC staff does not have access to student bank account information or student refund profiles.
Checks returned to WSCC by the U. S. Postal Serviceas undeliverable and no forwarding address will receive an e-mail notification through StarMAIL. Checks not disbursed within 10 business days are voided.
A lost check may be reissued after 14 business days (excluding holidays) upon presenting an Indemnity Bond (completed, signed, and notarized) to the Morristown Cashier's Office. Upon receipt of the Indemnity Bond, the Cashier's Office will place a stop payment on the lost check and submit a check request for a reissue. The reissued check will be mailed.
Print an Indemnity Bond or pick one up from any campus Cashier's Office.
