Getting Your Money BankMobile Vibe Card

The Anoka Technical College BankMobile Vibe card is issued to all Anoka Technical College students, through a partnership between the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, Anoka Tech, and BankMobile, a financial services company serving colleges and universities across the country.

This is not a credit card. This service will give you faster access to your financial aid funds and/or student payroll, depending on your refund selection.

Tech iT Card for New Students

Students that are registering at Anoka Technical College for the first time will receive the BankMobile Vibe card in the mail. You will be receiving your financial aid, refunds and/or student payroll on the BankMobile Vibe card. It's fast, secure and convenient: no waiting in line.

Card is Mailed to Students’ Homes

Your BankMobile Vibe card will be mailed by BankMobile to your home address. To avoid any delays, DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR CARD.

Selecting Your Payroll/Refund/Disbursement Preference

You must activate your BankMobile Vibe card as soon as you receive your card in the mail. Visit to activate it and select your refund preference.

With the BankMobile Vibe card, you have three options to receive your financial aid disbursement and/or student payroll:

Automatically Deposit into Existing Bank Account

You may request to electronically deposit your financial aid disbursement or your student payroll to your existing bank account. Visit when you receive the card to activate your account and select to have your financial aid or student payroll disbursement transferred. If you choose this option, your refund will be deposited in your bank account in two to three business days after Anoka Tech sends the funds to BankMobile. There is no charge for receiving your refund this way. You will have to complete, print and mail an Automated Clearinghouse Transfer (ACH) form.

Disburse Directly to BankMobile Vibe Account

The BankMobile account is a checking account/debit card that you open with BankMobile and link to your BankMobile Vibe card. If you select the BankMobile Vibe account, you will be able to use your BankMobile Vibe card to make purchases anywhere that MasterCard is accepted and to get cash out of BankMobile ATM machines. Visit when you receive the card to activate your account and select the BankMobile Vibe account.

If you choose this option, your disbursement is available the same business day after Anoka Tech sends the funds to BankMobile. Financial aid disbursements are usually available the third week of each semester for students that have an active award and are in good academic standing. There may be fees associated with the BankMobile Vibe account, including PIN based transaction fees. To avoid a debit fee, use the "swipe and sign" method when making purchases: swipe your card, select the "credit" option and sign your receipt. Please review the BankMobile Fee Schedules to learn more about potential fees associated with the Vibe Account and its services.

Issue a Paper Check by U.S. Mail

You may request to have your financial aid refund disbursement issued in a paper check. Visit when you receive the card to activate your account and select to have your refund disbursement issued as a paper check.  You will receive your paper check in the mail in five to seven business days.. Checks are mailed to your address on file at Anoka Technical College after Anoka Tech sends the funds to BankMobile. It is important that you update any changes to your address to avoid delays in receiving your check. There is no charge for receiving your disbursement or student payroll this way, although it will take longer for the check to arrive at your address.
