Valencia Refund

Your Refund. Your Choice.



Blackboard Pay has been acquired by BankMobile. We are currently converting our processes to this service provider in order to be able to deliver new electronic refund choices to all students effective fall term 2018.

If currently enrolled in a ACH Transfer or Money + Card option, we will continue to process your refunds in the same manner until additional information is provided to your Atlas email in the upcoming months. If you have not yet received information about selecting an electronic refund preference, or have not previously opted into an electronic deposit option, then you will receive a paper check in the mail. Please make sure your home is up to date in Atlas to ensure prompt delivery of your refund check.


Effective August 2016, Valencia College has partnered with Blackboard to provide students with electronic refund choices.The contract between Valencia College and Blackboard may be reviewed here.
