CSB/SJU Campus ID Cards Q & A

Can faculty and staff continue to use their campus ID card to charge purchases?

No.  New federal regulations no longer allow faculty, staff, or students to use their campus ID card as a charge card.  

Can students still charge books and meal plans to their student account?

Yes, but only during limited time periods.  CSB and SJU undergraduate students may still charge educational materials at the bookstore or student meal plans at Culinary/Dining Services to their student account from August 1 to September 10 and from December 10 to February 10. 

What alternatives are in place?

 CSB and SJU have instituted the following changes to ease the transition.

  • The CSB/SJU Bookstores offer a prepaid Bookstore Bucks Account.  With this program you can put any amount on the account and transactions can be for any value.  Your campus ID will be used for the Bookstore Buck Account.
  • The CSB/SJU Bookstores accept many forms of payment, including:  Master Card, Visa, American Express, Discover, cash, check and Bookstore Bucks.
  • The Culinary and Dining Services on each campus offer prepayment for meal plans to students and employees. The Culinary and Dining Services also accept many forms of payment including: Master Card, Visa, American Express, Discover, cash, check and Dining Bucks. 

Can students or staff continue to charge club fundraising pledges to their campus ID cards?

How do I pay when I register for campus events?

How do I pay for my meals now?

CSB and SJU Culinary and Dining Services offer meal plan options that students and employees may purchase for use at dining facilities on both campuses.  You can also use cash, check or credit/debit cards for one-time meal purchases. 

Will fines still be charged to my student/employee account?
