West Coast University offers students two options to receive their financial aid stipends electronically. Students can sign up for electronic disbursements to either:
- Your personal bank account via ACH direct deposit
- The WCU Cash Card, a Money Network® Enabled Master Card
There are multiple ways to receive your financial aid stipends. You are not obligated to receive your funds on the WCU CashCard, however, we encourage all students to enroll to receive their funds electronically. If you do not select either direct deposit or sign up for the Cash Card, you will receive your funds via a paper check mailed to your address on record with the University.
Your WCU CashCard can be used anywhere that MasterCard is accepted, and allows free ATM withdrawals at Allpoint Network® ATMs.
Your WCU CashCard also comes with Money Network® Checks which can be used to pay bills, or you can write yourself a check and cash it at participating locations to access up to 100% of your available account balance at no charge. Your CashCard can be reloaded if you upgrade your account. Upgrading is free. Requires a one-time verification of your identity. Once upgraded, your Card may be reloaded by you, your, family, friends, or participating employers.
