BMCC partners with BankMobile to deliver students' financial stipend/refund. After you enroll for classes at BMCC the first time, BankMobile will send you the Refund Selection Kit. For more information about BankMobile, visit

Refund (Stipend) Choices:

  • DEPOSIT TO AN EXISTING ACCOUNT Money is transferred to an existing account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from BMCC. Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.


  • DEPOSIT TO A BANKMOBILE VIBE CHECKING ACCOUNT If you open a BankMobile Vibe Checking Account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from BMCC.
  • There is also paper check option.

The BankMobile Vive Checking account provides the student with a card which can be used to purchase books at the BMCC Bookstore.

Emergency Book Loan- student emergency book loans are designed to assist BMCC students in the time period between the start of classes and financial aid stipend. For more information and application, please visit our Student Emergency Loans page.
