|Beginning in July, Tri-County Community College (TCCC) will be partnering with Higher One®, to bring a new method for receiving your financial aid refunds and managing money to all TCCC students - It is called the "My Tri-County Card".
What does this mean for students?
It means more choices for managing your money and receiving Financial Aid refunds! Our partnership with Higher One ensures faster delivery of the refund money we may have for you; and smarter ways to manage that money.
Why are we making this change?
We've made the switch to Higher One's services to simplify your life and your finances; and to free up our administrative staff so they have more time to focus on serving you the student. Not to mention, Higher One offers a number of choices for refund delivery and a great variety of accounts designed with you in mind.
So who is Higher One?
Higher One is a company started by three college students who believed in a better way to help students receive and manage money. Learn more at www.HigherOne.com/Higher101
What do students need to do?
Make sure we have your current mailing address! Here's how:
- Pick-up an Address & Phone Change Request form at the Harper Help Desk (main campus), the Shope Building (Graham County Center), or online. *The Address & Phone Change Request may be returned by:
- Fax: (828) 837-3266
- Mail: 21 Campus Circle, Murphy, NC 28906
- In person: Harper Help Desk or the Shope Building
Be sure to update your address with the US Postal service as well to avoid delays.
Then, beginning July 6 look for the bright green envelope from Higher One! Once it arrives, you'll simply use the card inside to let us know how you'd like to receive your money. A choice is required so please choose the option that best fits you and be sure to get started as soon as it arrives! Remember, even if you are not currently expecting a refund, we may have money for you in the future, so don't wait.
