Did you apply and receive financial aid?

Disbursements are made through the CR Access Card program. Please choose a refund preference using your CR Access Card as soon as you receive it in the mail. This will allow for prompt delivery of your financial aid disbursements. 

The card will be mailed to you after you have enrolled in classes at CR.  DO NOT THROW THIS CARD AWAY, it is not a credit card and you will need the number on the card to set up your refund preference.  Go to :  www.CRaccesscard.com  to select your refund preference.

The funds disbursed to your CR Access Card are disbursed sometime during the indicated disbursement date (normally by noon).  Please be patient and allow for the transfer of funds to be processed.  You will be notified by an email (or a text message if you choose that option) from Higher One once the transfer is complete.

There is a Higher One ATM on the Eureka Main Campus in the LRC Breezeway.
