  • How do I receive my funds? BankMobile

     

    Los Medanos College has partnered with the disbursement provider, BankMobile Disbursements, to deliver financial aid to students beginning. Through the BankMobile disbursements/refund program you will have the following options for receiving your financial aid:

    • DEPOSIT TO AN EXISTING ACCOUNT – Money is transferred to an existing account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school.  Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
    • DEPOSIT TO A BANKMOBILE VIBE ACCOUNT – If you open a BankMobile Vibe checking account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from your school.

     

    All students MUST select a refund delivery preference from the options listed above.

    To select a refund delivery preference, complete the following:

    1. Sign onto your Insite Portal.
    2. Select the Financial Aid tile
    3. Then "My FA Disbursements"
    4. Select "BankMobile- First Time Setup"
