Important information for students receiving Financial Aid

You will receive a Refund Selection Kit, which will include your TECH OneCard and your personal code. This kit will be sent in a bright green envelope to your address on file with TSTC. The refund selection kit allows you to select your refund preference. Your refund selection kit includes TSTC’s student identification card, the TECH OneCard.
