Keep an eye on your mailbox for a lime green envelope which contains your CCS Refund Card. The CCCS Refund Card is a Debit Mastercard issued by Higher One, a financial services company, that is administering student refunds for colleges within the Colorado Community College System providing you with a fast and more convenient way to receive refunds. Once received, you must activate the card and choose the method you prefer to receive your financial aid or other school refunds. Your CCS Refund Card can be activated by going to their website at www.CCCSRefundCard.com.
Your refund preferences include:
- You may choose to have your refund loaded on the CCS Refund Debit Mastercard, or
- You may choose to have an ACH transfer to a checking or savings account
If a student chooses not to activate the card, his/her refund will be sent to the address on file with Higher One and is processed 21 days from the day of receiving the refund. Even if you do not expect to receive a refund, you may be owed one in the future; so it is critical that you choose your refund preference as soon as your card arrives.
Your new CCCS Refund card will be mailed to your current address on file with Trinidad State Junior College. To prevent cards from going to wrong addresses, it is critical you verify your address at time of registration because files are sent daily and could be sent with wrong information.
