New method of Logging in to GET!

May 28, 2014

All UCard holders now must log in to GET using their OIT/UMass NetIDs and associated passwords.  These are the same credentials used to log in to SPIRE.
New UMass cardholders are no longer required to register to GET to look at UCard plan balances, transaction histories, or to make credit card deposits, but will be asked to confirm their email address and phone number the first time they log in.
Cardholders who registered to GET in the past will also have to confirm their email address and phone number the first time they log in using their NetIDs.
PLEASE NOTE: Use your official UMass email address as your email address for the GET system.  Undergraduate students who have already registered in previous years - please update your email addresses from <netid>@student.umass.edu to <netid>@umass.edu.
Please contact the UCard Office with any questions, problems, or concerns.

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.
