Refunds and Financial Aid Delivery
The University of Arkansas has partnered with BankMobile, a division of Customers Bank, to deliver financial aid and other school refunds to University of Arkansas students.
All students will be asked to make a refund delivery preference selection from these options:
1) Deposit to your personal bank account, 2) Paper check sent via U.S. mail, or 3) Deposit to a BankMobile account.
The university does not endorse the BankMobile option over other available options. Additionally, the university
does not receive any compensation or financial incentives from Customers Bank related to its checking or debit card services.
We encourage students to explore their options to determine the best one that meets their needs.

What kinds of money might I receive from the U of A?
The most common type of money BankMobile disburses to students are funds left over from financial aid
awards, loans or grants after tuition has been paid. Students receiving these funds have usually requested this
additional support to help with books and living expenses. Other types of money may include reimbursement for
tuition overpayment or a dropped class.
How is my money delivered?
Delivery of refund money is a multi-step process. First, the University of Arkansas draws
funds from the respective loan and/or grant provider and applies it to your student account. Next, we
collect and verify that all the information is correct. Once verified, we send the information to BankMobile.
This often happens in groups or batches based on our bandwidth, capabilities, timelines, etc. Once they receive
your specific refund information, it is processed as fast as possible and disbursed according to your selection.
Can I change my preference for receiving money from the U of A?
Yes. Just log in to your BankMobile account and select Refund Preferences from
the Refund menu option. Once on the page,
simply make your new selection and click the Update Preference
button to complete the process. Be aware that your new selection will only impact future money you receive
from the U of A.
How will I know when my money has been sent?
BankMobile will send you an email to the address you entered during setup. You can also
