The JacksCard Office provides two
different accounts for your student ID card: JacksDebit Express and Dining
All university IDs with a black magstripe
will work for both of these accounts. Read more to learn the differences
between the accounts and which options will work best for you.
JacksDebit Express (JDE)
JDE is your key to campus purchases. It’s an account on your
ID card that provides a way to prepay for the use of a wide variety of student
services, and make purchases without carrying cash.
Guardians can also fund their student’s school-related
expenses from home. Unlike Dining Dollars, which are reserved strictly for meal
purchases, JDE can be utilized for various purchases on campus.
Why use a JDE account?
JDE is designed specifically for students looking for
convenience and security. You’ll use less cash when on campus, and funds placed
in the JDE account are spent primarily on purchases related to campus life, so
it’s a great budgeting tool.
Best of all, the account is free and easy to use. JDE
requires no service charge or fees, and you can add money to your account using
Visa, Mastercard, cash, or check.
Dining Dollars are a great way to purchase food tax-free at
more than 26 dining outlets on campus.
Dining Dollars provide an easy, convenient method to prepay
for meals without needing to leave campus. See Northern Arizona University Dining for
Adding funds to your card
There are many convenient ways to add funds to your card. If you are on campus, you can make a cash deposit in one of our Deposit Station Machines. They are located at the duBois Center, the Health and Learning Center, and the University Union. You can also add funds in person at our office (located in the University Union, Room #115) or by phone at 928-523-1905, or you can also make a deposit online.
