Review of applications begins prior to the term start date; see the schedule below for the dates of that term. Applications received before the first date will be held until that time. If approved, your account will be charged for the amount of your advance. Your advance will be distributed via the BankMobile Disbursements refund method you have selected: deposited into your own bank account, BankMobile Vibe account, or a BankMobile paper check. If your refund preference is paper check, be sure to confirm that your address on file is accurate at www.RefundSelection.com. You will be notified by email if your application is denied.
