Student Refunds

Please ensure with the University Registrar’s Office that your home address is correct.

In order to provide more flexible options for receiving refunds, Bowie State University has partnered with BankMobile Disbursements to deliver financial aid and other school refunds to you beginning the Spring 2018 semester. ­­ 

The new refund program will give you the following options for receiving refunds:

  • Deposit to an Existing Account
  • Deposit to a BankMobile Vibe Checking Account
  • Paper Check Delivered By USPS

All students will be asked to select a refund delivery preference from the options listed above. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Update your mailing address
    BankMobile will mail a Refund Selection Kit to the current address you have on file with Bowie State University. If you’re not sure that Bowie State has your current mailing address, please take a moment to update your address information with the University Registrar’s Office.
  2. Look for your Personal Code
    Please look for your Refund Selection Kit, it will arrive in a bright green envelope. It contains your personal code for making your refund preference selection. You will also receive an email from BankMobile Disbursements with a personal code. Use either code to select your refund preference.
  3. Select how you’d like to receive your money
    Once your kit arrives, go to and enter your personal code to get started. Then simply select how you’d like to receive your money. If you select the BankMobile Vibe account as your refund choice, you will receive a temporary virtual Debit MasterCard® to use until your physical card arrives in the mail.
