What are Bobcat Bucks?
Bobcat Bucks works like a debit card. It is a unique money management system on your EGSC CatCard that is available to all students, faculty, 和 staff.
Once you have made a deposit into your personal Bobcat 美元账户, you simply present your EGSC CatCard to pay for meals at campus dining locations or to purchase books, supplies, 和 personal items at the campus Book Store.
You can also use your EGSC CatCard at copy machines, for entry at the Fitness Center, 和 access to Computer Labs.
How does it work?
Your EGSC CatCard is already encoded to provide access to campus events 和 activities. When you make a deposit to your personal Bobcat 美元账户, your EGSC CatCard becomes your Bobcat Bucks card as well.
Each time you make a purchase, your EGSC CatCard is swiped through a card reader 和 the amount of the purchase is automatically deducted from the balance in your Bobcat 美元账户. Your remaining balance is indicated on your receipt after each transaction so you will always know how much money remains in your account.
