Campus Cards

College cards are getting wired. The first full-scale application of Web-based campus card account management capability was launched last week by the University at Buffalo. Using UB Card Online Account Management, students have access to their Campus Cash (bookstore, vending, retail, etc.) and Dining Dollars (meal plan) accounts from any Internet-connected personal computer. They can review transaction histories, check balances and transfer money from credit cards or checking accounts into campus accounts. Parents also have the ability to remotely add value to a student’s account. The technology to offer Web access was made possible through an alliance formed between JSA Technologies and Diebold. JSA hosts UB’s secure, password protected site for Web-based transactions and Diebold’s WebAttach application provides the interface to the campus card system.
