What is the HigherOne Card?
The West Georgia OneCard functions as a MasterCard 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 financial aid refunds electronically through this system.
You will receive your HigherOne card in the mail after you register. Do not throw this away! You 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
- 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
- All campus food locations
- Wolves Card office (card replacements and faxes)
If you order a replacement HigherOne card via the web or with HigherOne customer service you will be assessed a $20 replacement. The Wolves Card Office located in the UCC will assess a $15 replacement fee for all inactive HigherOne cards. The replacement fee is non-refundable.
