It is not a credit card.
Your Higher One Debit Card (also known as HCC OneCard) will be mailed to you at the address we have on file at HCC. It is not a credit card; do not throw it away. When you receive it, activate your Higher One card and select the payment receipt options. After you activate your HCC OneCard, visit HCC’s Higher One website for helpful information.
Refunds will be put on your Higher One card. The card has the MasterCard logo so you can use it at any location that accepts MasterCard. You can use your Higher One Card to pay for your tuition or to pay for TIPS.
The Higher One card is used in the event you have a refund due to you. The refund will be placed on your Higher One card. If you lose or misplace your original card, contact Higher One for a duplicate card. You are responsible for the fee for the duplicate card.
