What is the HigherOne Card?
The West Georgia OneCard functions as a MasterCard Debit Card, which is accepted by more than 31 million merchants worldwide. It can serve as a primary bank account while allowing cardholders to get cash from ATMs, write checks, send and receive money electronically, and monitor their accounts online. Students will also be able to receive their refunds, including Financial Aid, electronically through the HigherOne Card. Students will receive their HigherOne card in the mail after registration. Do not throw this away! Students must activate this card in order to receive the following financial disbursements from West Georgia:
- any financial aid balance refunds
- refunds from dropped classes
- refunds from early withdrawals
- Hope book refunds
- other refunds
The HigherOne card is a true debit card in that any funds that reside on this card can be spent at any world-wide merchant that accepts debit cards. However, the only locations currently on campus where you can use the funds on this card are:
- University bookstore
- Pay fees at business office
- All campus food locations
- The Wolves Card Office
If you order a replacement HigherOne card via the web, with HigherOne customer service, or at The Wolves Card Office located in the UCC you will be assessed a replacement fee by HigherOne - $20.00 for active cards, $15.00 for inactive cards. The replacement fee is non-refundable.
