Daytona State One Card


Overview

The DSC OneCard signifies your status as a student and provides you with options on how to receive your student refunds.

Each registered student will be issued a DSC OneCard. Your card will arrive in the mail at your primary address on file with the college. You should receive it in the mail approximately 7 – 10 business days from the date of your first registration for college credit or vocational courses.

Once you receive your DSC OneCard you must activate the card. During card activation, you will select a refund preference. This is the method by which you will receive any student refund from Daytona State (except credit card refunds). You will activate your card and make your refund selection online at www.dsconecard.com. Regardless of whether you anticipate that you will receive a refund, it is important for you to activate your card and choose a refund preference.

The Daytona State OneCard puts the power to choose in your hands. You get to make the choice on how to receive your student refunds. Your options include:

  1. Directly depositing your refund into a Higher One checking account (OneAccount). The OneAccount is a fully-functioning FDIC insured free checking account with no minimum balance and includes free internet banking features. With this option, your DSC OneCard functions as a debit card for the account and can be used to make purchases anywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted. Your refund will be deposited within 1 day or less with this option.
  2. An ACH transfer (direct deposit) to another bank account of your choice. While the initial request for ACH transfer will be processed the same day funds are sent to Higher One, it may take your banking institution 2 – 3 days to make the funds available in your personal account.

  3. For more information about the DSC OneCard or to check the status of your card if you have not received one yet, log on to www.dsconecard.com. Use the "Where's my Card" feature to check the status of your card and use the EasyHelp feature to get answers to any additional questions you may have. You may also call or visit the Office of Student Accounts for additional information.

Refunds

Daytona State has partnered with Higher One, a banking company, to disburse all student refunds. When Daytona State is ready to process a refund batch, Daytona State will send Higher One a list of the students owed a refund along with a wire transfer of the funds to be disbursed. Higher One checks that there are no errors in the file or the wire transfer and then starts refund disbursement. Refunds are usually available on Fridays between 3 and 6 p.m.

In order to receive a student refund, you must have activated your DSC OneCard and have chosen a refund preference. Your refund options include:

  1. Directly depositing your refund into a Higher One checking account (OneAccount). The OneAccount is a fully functioning FDIC insured free checking account with no minimum balance and includes free internet banking features. With this option, your DSC OneCard functions as a debit card for the account and can be used to make purchases anywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted. Your refund will be deposited within 1 day or less with this option.

  2. An ACH transfer (direct deposit) to another bank account of your choice. While the initial request for ACH transfer will be processed the same day funds are sent to Higher One, it may take your banking institution 2 – 3 days to make the funds available in your personal account.

You may change your refund preference at any time by logging in to your account at www.dsconecard.com. From the menu select "Refund" then "Refund Preferences."

Your OneAccount

Your OneAccount is a fully functioning FDIC insured free checking account with no minimum balance and includes Internet banking features.

Your DSC OneCard serves as a debit card for this account and can be used to make purchases anywhere MasterCard is accepted. When using your OneCard to make purchases, always choose "credit" instead of "debit" at the checkout. When you swipe the card and sign the receipt, you won't be charged the PIN-based transaction fee. Your DSC OneCard is a DEBIT card and not a CREDIT card.

You can check your available balance on your online OneAccount statement to make sure you have enough money available to cover any purchases or cash withdrawals. It's updated in real-time and is available 24 hours a day. Checking your balance frequently will help you to avoid insufficient funds bank fees.

You can use your DSC OneCard to withdraw cash without a foreign ATM fee at any of the Higher One ATMs located on the Daytona, DeLand and Flagler campuses.
