    How to Activate Your Card

    Please visit us at the Mountain Card website to activate your card and choose your refund preference. For step by step instructions on activation please watch this short video: Learn About One.

    Your Refund Options

    The OneAccount is the fastest way to receive your refunds. Your refund will be received the same day the College sends the refund to HigherOne. This FDIC insured free checking account has no minimum balance requirement and allows you access to your account 24/7 online. Your User ID, password, and ATM PIN are set up during the activation process. The Mountain Card is a Debit MasterCard (this is NOT a credit card) which gives you purchasing power worldwide. Be sure to swipe and sign to avoid the PIN based transaction fees. Please visit the Higher One website to view the fee schedule.

    How to change your refund preference.

    You can change your refund preference anytime by logging into your OneAccount at the Mountain Card website. From the main menu bar select Financial Refunds then Refund Preferences chose your new choice and click the Update Preferences button.

    How will you know when your refund has been deposited to your OneAccount?

    You will receive an e-mail when your refund has been directly deposited to your OneAccount. You can also check your OneAccount balance/activity 24 hours a day at the Mountain Card website. Notification by text message is also available by setting "mobile alert" options in the "profile" section of your Higher One account.

    The HigherOne ATM.

    The Higher One ATM is located in the lobby of the library. You can use the ATM to withdraw cash and/or view the available balance on your OneAccount. There is no fee when using your Mountain Card and the daily cash limit is $500. If the Higher One ATM is not in service, you may use an alternative ATM.

    There is a non-Higher One ATM located on campus in the Jazz Cafe Lobby. Please file an incident report through Easy Help at the Mountain Card website or by calling 1-800-816-3130 to request reimbursement for the applicable fees associated with using a non-Higher One ATM. Higher One will refund up to a total of $3.50 per person per day.

    If a staff member (or faculty) received a card in the mail- do they need to activate the card?

    Yes. Faculty and staff registered for a credit course will receive a card in the event they receive a reimbursement in their role as a student.

    This is not your Student ID Card.

    You still need your student ID card to use on campus.

    What to do if you have a change of address.

    If you need to update your address, please log into your student account at  my.mhcc.edu/ics or stop by the Admissions office in Student Services.
