Fall 2015 students will begin to receive their My Eagle Card after July 30th.
Your My Eagle Card will be mailed to you after you have enrolled in classes. Do not throw this card away, it is NOT a credit card. It contains your personal code for making your refund preference selection (select how you prefer to receive your financial aid disbursement), as well as a My Eagle Card. If you select the OneAccount as your method of disbursement, the card will be activated as a functioning Debit MasterCard® and linked to your OneAccount. For your convenience, the Higher One ATM is located in the Student Center.
IMPORTANT! Higher One will send emails to your COS email with important information regarding your Higher One card and financial aid disbursements. You MUST log in frequently to your COS email account in order to receive up to date information. If you need to set up or access your email, log onto your Navigator and click on the email icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen and follow the instructions.
