UMoney is a powerful feature of your Griz Card. It is a prepaid flexible spending account that allows you to purchase food, goods, and services at over 100 different locations both on and off campus. Discover UMoney, the safe and easy way to make purchases using your Griz Card....just swipe and go!

Why should I deposit to an UMoney account?

Convenience, flexibility, safety and discounts. Your favorite location requires a minimum purchase amount for debit and credit cards? The vending machine is flashing correct change only? Don't want to carry cash? UMoney is a fast and secure way to make purchases both on and off campus, and makes it easy to budget your money throughout the semester. Most off campus merchants will give you a discount when you pay with Griz Card UMoney. Please call, email, or visit the Griz Card Center to find out more about the benefits of UMoney.

How is my account protected?

Your UMoney is accessed using your University ID Card, so when you present it for purchases you will be providing the merchant with your photo and signature. Our merchants are then responsible to make sure the person using the Griz Card matches the photo ID and signature.

How do I view my account balance and transaction history?

You can visit the Griz Card Center to check your balance and request transaction history reports, or you can check your balance at the Griz Card Kiosk located outside the Griz Card Center. You can also view your account balance, transaction history, or recent deposits online by logging into Griz Card eAccounts.

 Please contact us if you need assistance registering for a login or making a deposit via eAccounts.

Can I withdraw cash from my UMoney?

You cannot withdraw cash from the UMoney account unless you are withdrawing from UM, graduate at the end of a semester, are terminated as an employee, or have other special circumstances. If you meet the requirements, the entire UMoney balance must be withdrawn from the account. There is a $10.00 processing fee for UMoney refunds.  The fee will be deducted from the UMoney balance.  Thirty days after the last deposit to the account, the refund process will begin. The refund will be issued by Business Services via the option you selected when you received your UM Refund Choice Card.  If you owe money to the University, the refund will be applied to your balance due. Please email us requesting the form or visit the Griz Card Center to complete a UMoney Refund Form.

Does UMoney expire at the end of the semester or while I'm on exchange?

No way! The money is yours to spend at participating merchants, regardless of the term or year. After 18 months of either no activity on your UMoney account or no University affiliation, our office will start to close the UMoney account. UMoney funds are held in trust by the University of Montana and managed by the Griz Card Center. Please see the UMoney Terms and Conditions for more information.

How do I activate a UMoney account?

Getting started is easy and free. There are no forms to fill out or fees to pay and no minimum deposit is required-simply activate your account with an initial deposit.
