HigherOne provides different refund options to students of participating institutions in specific areas in the states of Connecticut and California through the use of their OneCard and OneAccount.
HigherOne was founded in 2000 by three college students. The company offers financial services by providing payment services and refund management to different participating higher education institutions, which was made possible with using a card-based solution. HigherOne allows the administration of the participating institutions to reduce their costs as well as improve on the kind of service offered to their students. The OneCard is the debit card that HigherOne uses. It is powered by MasterCard and is tied up with an insurance checking account with FDIC that does not require any minimum balance, nor does it charge any monthly fees. The checking account is called OneAccount, from where money will be withdrawn each time the card is used. HigherOne offers different refund options to their members. One of these options is through EasyRefund, which directly deposits the money owed to the student by the institution at the exact same day that the refund is released. Today, HigherOne is offered in different institutions across Oakland, California and New Haven, Connecticut.
