Refund Processing Through BankMobile

James Madison University has partnered with BankMobile to deliver your financial aid refund. BankMobile is committed to delivering 100% of your refund at no cost, providing students with clear choices and offering great customer service. When it comes to deciding how to get your money, you deserve choices.  Your choices include:

  • DEPOSIT TO AN EXISITING ACCOUNT – Money is transferred to an existing account the same business day BankMobile receives funds from the school. Typically, it takes 1 – 2 business days for the receiving bank to credit the money to your account.
  • DEPOSIT TO A BANKMOBILE VIBE CHECKING ACCOUNT – If you open a BankMobile Vibe checking account (upon identity verification), money is deposited the same business day BankMobile receives funds from the school.


To get started:

  1. Log into mymadison.jmu.edu
  2. Go to the Student Center
  3. Click the My Refunds link to make your refund preference selection
