HOW CAN I MAKE DEPOSITS TO MY GOCARD ACCOUNT?

For your utmost convenience, the GOCard Office has introduced an Online GOCard Office, which allows for secure deposits. You can use your Visa or MasterCard to make deposits directly into your account. Deposits made through the GOCard Website will be available immediately upon completion of a valid transaction and will be protected by our secure server. Meanwhile, deposits may also be made with cash at various Deposit Stations around campus, (click here for map).

Requests for transfer between the debit and flex dollar account must be made within seven days of the deposit. Requests made after seven days will not be processed. Additionally, transfers cannot take place if the full-deposited amount is no longer available.

Direct Deposit Program

If you are a faculty or staff member you may enroll in the  "GOCard Direct Deposit Program"!  Faculty & Staff can now deposit funds to their GOCard with “DirectDeposit”! It has never been easier for you to put money onto your GOCard without handling cash or filling out unnecessary paperwork.
