Financial Aid Disbursement
Our Financial aid disbursements are made through BankMobile Vibe. If you receive any type of financial aid (i.e., Pell, State Need, Loans, some scholarships), in excess of your tuition costs you will receive a BankMobile Vibe personal code in the mail – watch for the green envelope! Learn more about BankMobile and your My YVC Card, for directions on how to access your financial aid.
What does this mean for students?
Our partnership with BankMobile Vibe ensures faster delivery of financial aid funds to students. In addition, BankMobile Vibe provides more choices for how financial aid is disbursed.
Who is BankMobile?
BankMobile Vibe (formerly Higher One) is a division of Customers Bank and provides services to colleges with lower costs and more options than the colleges could provide themselves. Students are able to choose how their financial aid disbursements are received (ACH to an established account, open a BankMobile Vibe account or have a paper check mailed). Learn more about the features of BankMobile Vibe. You can view our contract with BankMobile Vibe.
Ensure your mailing address is current
For starters, make sure your mailing address is up-to-date. An address file with important enrollment information for BankMobile will be drawn periodically. It is important that you get the BankMobile Vibe enrollment information and that BankMobile Vibe receives your instructions.
Moving? Update your address
If you have moved or will move at the start of the quarter, also submit your change of address notification to the US Postal Service to avoid delays. Look for the bright green envelope from BankMobile Vibe! The instructions inside and personal code will lead you through the set-up process.

Even if you are not currently expecting a financial aid refund, you may have one in the future or you may have a refund if a class is canceled or you change your schedule, so set up your account right away.
