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 your student's myCard with money ("General Dollars") is a great way to ensure that they have access to funds for necessities.

Budget-Friendly Benefits

Supporting Your Student

You can add money to your student's myCard quickly and easily by using the secure Online myCard Website and clicking on "Parental Deposit". These transactions occur as regular purchase charges on your Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover or Interac Debit, so you won't be subject to cash advance fees or interest charges.

Parent Deposit - Parents can visit to access the myCard site and then click 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. Parents do not need to log in first. Parents 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.
