Students can receive tuition refunds, financial aid electronically

Tidewater Community College students can now receive tuition refunds and financial aid disbursements electronically in as little as one to two business days.

Students will have the option to choose a reloadable Visa-branded prepaid debit card or direct deposit (ACH) into their existing bank accounts. The reloadable Visa prepaid debit card can be used at all retail stores that accept Visa prepaid debit cards. The card can also be used fee-free at more than 55,000 ATMs machines within the AllPoint ATM network.

At the start of each term, all new and current students who are not already registered on the TCC Refund Disbursement Portal will receive an email inviting them to register and select one of the refund disbursement options. Students who do not anticipate receiving a financial aid disbursement or a tuition refund are still encouraged to register. Students need to set up their preference only one time, and may change it at any time. Early signup is highly recommended.

Students who pay tuition with a credit card using QuikPAY will have their tuition refund issued back to them on that card rather than through this new service.

All students should log in to the TCC Student Information System (SIS) via myTCC to verify their mailing address, name and date of birth are correct.
