Pioneer ID Card
The Flex account is our flexible spending (debit) account. This account provides security and convenience. You need not carry cash, as your Pioneer Card can be used to make purchases on and off campus for a variety of products and services.
Funds are secure, as account balances are maintained on a central database in the University's central computer room. As long as you report a lost or stolen ID card immediately, your account balance is protected.
Flex funds roll over from quarter to quarter and year to year. You will have access to your funds as long as you are a current student or employee.
Depositing to Flex
All students, staff, and faculty have a Flex account. You just need to make a deposit and you're ready to go! You can make deposits online with a credit card, or in the ID Office with cash or check.
Cash deposits to your Flex account can also be made in Anderson Academic Commons at the account management center located on the main floor.
Funds deposited online or at the account management center are available for use immediately. Deposits made in the ID Office are available for use the following morning. The minimum deposit required is $1.00. Cards inactive for over 12 months will be charged a $5.00 monthly service charge.
Cash cannot be withdrawn from the Flex Account. However, refunds may be requested through the ID Office. You can obtain a Flex Refund Request form here, or in the ID Office. Refunds will be made by check or direct deposit.
Refunds can only be made at the end of the academic year, when graduating, for an official stop out, when all classes are dropped, or for account closure.
