Direct Deposit

-- Log in to the MySCC Student Portal
-- On the right side under COLLEAGUE APPLICATION FOR STUDENTS, select “Self Service” 
-- Under Self Service select “Bank Information”

-- Student must check the I Agree box and press SUBMIT.

PLEASE NOTE: When signing up for direct deposit, please allow five (5) business days for the direct deposit to take effect. Once you have signed up for direct deposit, any future credit balance will automatically be deposited into your bank account. You do not need to sign up each semester.
If you pay tuition with a debit or credit card, that portion of the refund will go back to the debit or credit card and the remaining balance will be processed via the selected refund method.

If the bank rejects the deposit due to incorrect bank information, the bank will notify SCC. SCC will contact the student to notify them. The student will need to make their own corrections in Self Service or request a paper check. If a paper check is requested, it will be issued within 5 to 7 business days.
If you fail to update your direct deposit information and the refund is sent to a closed account, that is in bad debt status with the financial institution, SCC is not responsible for the intercepted refund.


Tuition Refunds

It is the policy of Spartanburg Community College that a student or sponsoring agency/program receives a fair and equitable refund of tuition charges if a student withdraws from a term or a full-time student reduces the number of credit hours to below 12 credit hours. This policy is explained in the SCC Catalog under college costs, student refund/term withdrawal/federal return of funds, and this publication is located on the SCC website at Refund dates are also printed in the SCC Enrollment & Registration Resource Guide in the semester deadline charts.

How does the refund process work?

The refund process adjusts the amount of tuition charged for a class based on the date a class is dropped, not the amount you paid out-of-pocket. Please refer to the published dates for last date to drop. If a class is dropped after the 100% refund dates, you will be responsible for the full tuition amount.

Choose your method of payment with care. All refunds processed from start of term through the published date financial aid transmits due to schedule changes will be remitted based upon the source of funds used for payment. If you paid with a credit card, the refund will be credited back to the credit card. All refunds processed after financial aid transmits will be in the form of a check made payable to the student, regardless of source of funds. It is the student's responsibility to make sure their address is kept current in the records office. All financial aid disbursement checks will be mailed to the student's address of record (please see published date for each semester in your Enrollment and Registration Resource Guide).

How will I get my refund of excess financial aid?

The method of refund disbursement is your choice. All refunds are made by check and mailed to your address of record in accordance with the published date for each semester in your Enrollment and Registration Guide, unless you sign up for direct deposit. It's your responsibility to keep your address current with SCC's Records Office. They can be reached at or at (864)592-4681.
