MDC OneCard

As an MDC student eligible for a financial aid refund or disbursement, you will receive an MDC OneCard. This card will be mailed to you at the primary address on file with the College.

To receive your refund, you must activate this card. During the activation, you will be able to choose how you receive your money. If you want faster access to your funds, simply choose to have your funds deposited directly to the OneAccount associated with your card. Remember, MDC will not be able to disburse your refund to you unless you activate our OneCard and choose a refund preference.
