Deduction of Fees
Financial Aid (grants, federal student loans, and scholarships) will first be used to reduce current institutional debt you owe to Skyline College, College of San Mateo, or Cañada College, including enrollment fees, health fees, and nonresident tuition. If your financial aid is more than the amount owed, you will be paid the remaining balance.
If you are disbursed an emergency scholarship or state grant the financial aid office will first reduce your previous debt you owe to Skyline College, College of San Mateo, or Cañada College. If your financial aid is more than the amount owed, you will be paid the remaining balance.
The San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD) delivers your financial aid and scholarship refund with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. Visit this link for more information: Refund Choices.
When it comes to deciding how to get your money, you deserve choices. Your choices include:
- Electronic Deposit to your Bank Account
Money is transferred to your bank account the same business day BMTX, Inc. receives funds from your school. Typically, it takes 1-2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
- Electronic Deposit to a BMTX, Inc. Vibe Account
If you open a BMTX, Inc. Vibe account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BMTX, Inc. receives funds from your school.
If you decide not to have your funds deposited electronically, you will receive a check in the mail.
Students with pending financial aid or scholarship refunds will receive a personal code in the mail via a green envelope or in an email from BMTX, Inc. Students may also request a personal code directly through the BMTX, Inc. site. The personal code allows you to sign up for one of two electronic options to deposit your money - either direct deposit to your existing bank account or to a BMTX, Inc. VIBE Checking Account.
Please Note: If prompted to enter your school name, use San Mateo County Community College District. We are enrolled with BMTX, Inc. as a college district, not as three separate colleges.
