How Do I Get My Refund

My Purple Knight Card

The University is making it quicker and easier for students to receive their refunds.

UB’s Higher One Partner

Purple Knight CardUniversity of Bridgeport has partnered with Higher One, a financial services company focused solely on higher education, to offer faster delivery of refunds to students. All refunds are processed by Higher One.
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?

The my Purple Knight Card with the MasterCard logo will provide you with two options on how to receive their refunds. The options are Easy Refund to the OneAccount or ACH transfer (direct deposit) to the student’s personal bank account.

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?

You will receive a my Purple Knight Card shortly after you register for classes in your first semester at UB. The card will be mailed to your current address on file with the University. If your initial card is mailed to the wrong address, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services. Once you activate your card and select a preference, any subsequent address change will need to be made both with UB and Higher One.

If you’re not sure that UB has your current mailing address, please take a moment to visit WebAdvisor. If the address is incorrect, email the Registrar’s office (for domestic students), or the International Student Services office or visit its ISS UB portal page (for international students) to update your address. Your new my Purple Knight Card will be mailed to your current address on file with the University.
