Disbursement of Funds


Effective April 24, 2017: Bellevue College has partnered with a bank called BankMobile to disburse all financial aid funds to our students. This partnership gives you options on how you would like to receive your refunds.

Each quarter, after you are awarded, we first pay any tuition and fees that you may owe to the college. If there is a remaining balance, also referred to as a financial aid refund, BankMobile will send it to you according to the refund selection you choose.

Once you complete your financial aid file, a BankMobile refund selection kit will be sent to you in the US Mail. The envelope contains information you will need to setup how you would like to receive your refunds while you are attending Bellevue College. Once you receive this selection kit, you must go online and choose the way you would like to receive your financial aid refunds.
