Debit Cards Are Here!

Below is some information regarding the Debit Card Program at Okefenokee Technical College.

  • Cards were issued to all currently enrolled students who received any form of financial aid, including Pell, SEOG, and Hope.  Note that some students who received cards are not due a refund this semester. However, the cards should be kept for future terms for possible refunds as the refund amount will be instantaneously loaded on the card when due.  Please ensure that you go ahead and activate your card, whether it has funds on it or not, so that it will not be closed by SunTrust after 6 months.

  • It would be a good idea to go online and sign up for text or email alerts to notify you when a refund has been loaded.

This is a reloadable debit card that is strictly for the refund of financial aid. It is not a credit card and you cannot load funds onto the card; only OTC can load funds onto the card.  Once funds are loaded on the cards, these funds can be accessed by any of the following ways:

  • Walk into any VISA member bank and receive the funds with no fee ($5000.00 one-time withdrawal limit may apply)
  • Go to any SunTrust ATM or any ATM displaying the PLUS/Interlink logo and no fee will be charged
  • Purchase Goods or Services at any place that accepts VISA, including: Online, Pay-at-Pump, In-Person Purchases

If you are unsure if you are receiving a refund, you can check your BannerWeb account.  Instructions on accessing BannerWeb can be found on OTC’s homepage under Current Student – Banner Student Login.

Update on OTC campus ATM: SunTrust is working to correct a router problem.  We apologize for the inconvenience and expect it to be available by Monday of next week.

Even if you have received a card, if you do not wish funds to be loaded in the future, you can complete the Opt Out form located on the OTC website.
