Refunds & Disbursements

When will I receive my refund/reimbursement?

After your student account charges (tuition, fees, book store purchases, etc.) have been paid in full, you will receive any financial aid remaining on your account by direct deposit or debit card within a 14-day period. The refund/reimbursement will be processed for you according to how you set up your account.

The Financial Aid Office does not process refunds so we cannot tell you the amount of your refund or when it will be processed. If you have additional questions about your refund, please check your financial aid informaton online using your student Banner Web account or you may stop by the Business Office cashier window or call them at 770-228-7275 (Griffin) or 706-646-6239 (Thomaston).


Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) has made the decision to Go Green. In our effort to reduce significantly or possibly eliminate the use of paper checks, SCTC will utilize electronic methods to issue student refunds:


  • Direct Deposit - Students will receive their refunds by direct deposit to their personal bank account (checking or savings) specified by the student. Along with the direct deposit form, please provide a preprinted personal voided check. No starter checks will be accepted. The Direct Deposit request forms are located at the Business office cashier window or click HERE to download the form.  The deadline for submitting Direct Deposit information to the Business office for new or returning students is the first week of the semester. Any direct deposit information received after that date will be processed for the following semester. Students' Direct Deposit information will remain ACTIVE with the college until the student completes and submits a Direct Deposit Removal request form to the Business office.

  • Students with Direct Deposit will not receive a student SunTrust Visa Prepaid debit card.

Option #2 SUNTRUST VISA PREPAID DEBIT CARD (SunTrust will no longer be used by SCTC for student refunds after December 31, 2014.)

  • SunTrust Visa Prepaid Card - Refunds may be available to students through a SunTrust Visa Prepaid bank issued debit card.  Students that choose to receive their refund by debit card must have a current and valid mailing address, phone number, and email address on file with the Admissions office. Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) will be the only entity that can add additional funds to this SunTrust Visa prepaid debit card.

Students can sign up online to monitor their SunTrust Visa prepaid accounts by text or email at:\GPR. Students will be able to check Daily Available Balances, Deposits, Low Balances, and Update your profile data.

Please see the Business office cashier window for a SunTrust informational packet or click HERE to download the information.
