Fresno State Faculty & Staff,
Beginning in August, Fresno State will be changing to a new, faster, and more convenient method for students to receive financial aid, scholarship awards, and other student refunds - the Fresno State Choice Card from Higher One®. Fresno State has partnered with Higher One, Inc., a financial services company focused solely on higher education to deliver the university’s disbursements to students.

Founded in 2000, Higher One® provides higher education institutions and their students with efficient, convenient and easy-to-use solutions to handle financial disbursements. The new Fresno State Choice Card is designed to provide students with increased choices, including:
  • Same day deposit to a Higher One® OneAccount, an FDIC Insured, no monthly fee, no minimum balance checking account
  • The option to transfer funds to another bank account. If students were previously enrolled in Fresno State’s Bulldog Direct Deposit, their banking information will be automatically imported during the conversion process but, the student still needs to confirm this information at the time they activate their new card
  • Requesting a check to be mailed to the student from Higher One®.

What Students Need to Do
The new Fresno State Choice Card will be mailed to each student’s current address on file with Fresno State. We highly recommend that all students verify their mailing address in their portal as soon as possible.

We are very excited about the opportunity to provide Fresno State students faster service and increased choices for receiving financial disbursements. Please join us in welcoming this exciting new service to Fresno State.
