Navarro College has partnered with Higher One, a financial institution, to offer students quicker access to their refunds. All student refunds, including financial aid refunds, will be disbursed to students through the BeauCard. All students should activate their BeauCard even if they do not receive Financial Aid since refunds for withdrawals and overpayments will also be disbursed to the BeauCard.
When activating their BeauCard, students have the opportunity to choose to have their refund sent to them in one of two ways:
- 1. BeauCard OneAccount
- 2. Automated deposit (ACH) to a bank account of the student’s choice
The BeauCard is the quickest option, while ACH deposit usual takes 2 – 3 days longer to receive.
The BeauCard is a debit MasterCard® that can be used to make purchases at millions of locations worldwide and online, wherever Debit MasterCard® is accepted. The BeauCard can also be used to open a free checking account, the OneAccount. Carrying the BeauCard is safer than carrying around a lot of cash, and making purchases with a debit card is easier than writing a check. All of the debit purchases show up directly on the OneAccount online bank statement so there is the added benefit of always knowing how much money you’ve spent, where you have spent it and how much is left in the account.
The BeauCard will be mailed to the address on file in the Registrar’s Office after the student has registered. DO NOT THROW IT AWAY. You do not have to OPEN the HigherOne debit/checking account but you must make a choice as to payment method.
FOR QUESTIONS OR ASSISTANCE ABOUT THE BEAUCARD, PLEASE CALL THE NUMBER LISTED ON THE BACK OF THE CARD.
