How Do I Get My Refund
The University is making it quicker and easier for students to receive their refunds.
My Purple Knight Card
UB's Higher One Partner
The University will not issue refund checks, so you must use you card to access the Higher One website and choose an option for receiving any
refund due to you.
How Do I Use My Card?
This card is required for selection of a refund preference. To avoid delay in receiving any money due you, access the Higher One website at www.mypurpleknightcard.com and use your 16-digit card number to activate your refund status with Higher One. Even if you do not receive financial aid, you may be eligible to receive a refund from the University. Keep your my Purple Knight Card in safe place in case you need to access future funds owned to you.
When Do I Get My Card?
