How to Receive Your Refund and Student ID

When Will I Get My Refund?

Where Do I Go With Questions About My Refund?

Optional BankMobile Vibe Account

​ ​​​


College of the Desert has partnered with BankMobile, to bring students a new method for receiving their financial aid disbursements.

View our institution's contract with BankMobile, a Division of Customer Bank.​

What does this mean for students?

Students eligible to receive financial aid will need to select a 'refund option' in order to process their Fall, Spring and Summer disbursements.  Detailed instructions on how to choose one of the (2) disbursement methods will be provided.   

You can choose to have your financial aid funds deposited into an existing checking/savings account, or you can chose to use the BankMobile account (the debit card sent to you) and have your financial aid funds deposited there.

What do students need to do?

Make sure we have your current mailing address! Here’s how:

• Log in to WebAdvisor with your username and password.

• Under the User Account section, click "Address, Phone, Cell and Email Change"

Then, look for the BRIGHT GREEN ENVELOPE from BankMobile!  Once it arrives, you will simply let us know how you would like to receive your money.

Please note: Changing your address in WebAdvisor will not automatically generate a new card after the first card has been sent. Please see the Bursar's office if you have not received your card.

  • Wire Transfers - Students requesting a wire transfer from their BankMobile account to another checking or savings account will be charged a fee. You can avoid this wire transfer charge by setting up your account to deposit your financial aid into your non-BankMobile account. For more information contact BankMobile.

  • ATM - You may withdraw cash with no fees at any All Point Network ATM. All Point ATM's are located at the Palm Desert Campus in the Cravens Student Services Building on the 1st floor and in the Beeps Cafe in the Dining Hall building.
