Bank transactions are not free and paper checks cost SHSU a lot of money to process. With the Bearkat OneCard, SHSU gains access to electronic deposit for financial aid and other University refunds.
Further, card holders now have control of how they receive their University refund payments. Refund payments can be received as direct deposit to existing banks or to the OneAccount.
All options are free to students. The ability to provide electronic deposit of refunds reduces operating costs for the University while improving convenience for students.
To change your refund preference, you must log into bearkatone.com.
