UCard Debit Program Expanding Off-Campus!

September 2, 2013

COMING THIS FALL! The UCard debit program is expanding off campus!

For many years UMass students with UCard debit accounts have been able to purchase goods and services on-campus using their UCards.  Starting in Fall 2013, UCard debit account holders will also be able to use their UCards to purchase goods and services at a number of local, off-campus merchants that are participating in the new UMass off-campus merchant program. 

In addition to purchasing goods and services at the merchants’ stores, cardholders will be able to order and pay for food from some participating food merchants via our online GET Food platform. 

Continue to check the UCard and GET web sites for the latest news about which merchants are on board and other important UGryd, GET, and UCard information.  A listing of current participating merchants can be found by clicking on the "NEW!* Off-Campus Merchant Program link under the  All About the UCard section.
