Home Student Life myCard Information for Parents

Information for Parents

The myCard is more than just photo ID -- it's also a safe, convenient and cost-effective way for students to budget for and purchase essentials while on campus.  Loading up a student's myCard with money ("General Dollars") is a great way to ensure that they have access to funds for necessities.

Budget-Friendly Benefits

  • The card has no fees or interest
  • Savings through deals and discounts
  • The card can’t be used for the purchase of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, lottery tickets, pornographic materials and gift certificates, including prepaid gift or credit cards.
  • Unspent General Dollars are refundable upon request (administration fee does apply).

Parental Deposit

You can add money to your student's myCard quickly and easily by visiting  to access the myCard site and clicking the "Parental Deposit" link in the left-side menu to deposit General Dollars to your student’s myCards using Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover or Interac Debit. These transactions will show up as regular purchase chargesso you won't be subject to cash advance fees or interest charges. Parents do not need to log in first but will require the student number and date of birth to deposit funds. Parents do not have access to financial statements, card balances or transaction history. They can only deposit funds. Upon successful completion of a deposit, a receipt will be emailed to the email address entered on the payment page.
