Campus Currency

FAQs - East Falls Campus

Campus Currency is an account on your Jefferson Photo ID Badge.  You can activate through either the GET App, or Employee Self Service – just activate your account by adding funds or use existing meals and funds if signed up for a meal plan. 

Your Campus Currency account is open and ready for use when you receive your Jefferson Photo ID Badge – just activate your account by making a deposit with the amount and payment method that works best for you.

Students and employees may also make a deposit through the Online Card Center/GET Mobile App.

Employees have the additional option of enrolling in a voluntary deduction through Employee Self Service.

When making a purchase using Campus Currency at an accepting location on campus, simply present your Jefferson Photo ID Badge.  Your badge will be swiped to obtain payment for your purchase.

Campus Currency can be used at a variety of locations:

  • Ravenhill Dining Hall
  • Common Thread
  • Ted’s Place

Campus Locations:

  • Campus Store
  • Vending
  • Student Information Desk
  • Printers on Campus

If you attempt to overspend your balance at a campus location, all of the funds in your account will be used and then you will be prompted by the cashier to provide another form of acceptable payment to cover the remainder.

We recommend checking your balance on a regular basis through the Online Card Center or GET Mobile App.

Declining balance meal plans are not refunded. Account balances remain in your account as long as you are a member of the Jefferson Community.  When you retire, resign, terminate employment, graduate or withdraw from an academic program and have a remaining balance of $1.00 or more, you may be issued a refund.  If you have no outstanding balances with Jefferson, a refund will be issued via check, approximately 30 days after separation and mailed to your permanent address on file.

Please note that accounts with remaining balance of $0.99 or less will not be refunded.
