LCC is pleased to offer eRefunds PLUS through the TouchNet Student Account Center which can be accessed through Banner. Direct deposit is the fastest and most secure way for students to receive their refunds. LCC students will have full control of their refund profile and may add, delete, or change the bank accounts as they see fit. LCC will not share any personal information with TouchNet, the student will input the necessary information to set up their refund preference.
Who does this affect?
All LCC students will need to select an eRefunds PLUS preference in the Student Account Center.
eRefunds PLUS is easy, fast, and convenient for students. They will set up secure, online refund profiles (bank accounts to receive disbursements); receive emails when a distribution is pending and notification emails when a deposit has been made.
Sounds good, what's next?
