Convenience, flexibility, and discounts. Don't want to carry cash? Minimum purchase required to use your debit card? UMoney is a fast and secure way to make purchases both on and off campus. You don't have to carry another card for small miscellaneous purchases; you can use it across campus from vending machines, to printing, to renting a racquet at Campus Recreation. Many of our off campus UMoney merchants offer a discount when you pay with UMoney.
Your UMoney is accessed using your Griz Card, so when you present it for purchases you will be providing the merchant with your photo. Our merchants are then responsible to make sure the person using the Griz Card matches the photo ID.
You can view your account balance(s), transaction history, or recent deposits online by logging in to Griz Card eAccounts. You can also visit the Griz Card Center to check your balance and request transaction history reports.
Please contact us if you need assistance signing in or making a deposit via eAccounts.
No. UMoney is a separate account from your dining plan accounts. Your Griz Card can hold multiple accounts on it, including UMoney, All Campus, Flex, Destination Dining Plan, and Bear Bucks accounts. You may choose to use one or multiple accounts on your Griz Card as each has their own benefit. Campus Dining accepts many different accounts, and the cashier will ask which account you would like to use on your Griz Card when you pay. UMoney works at many dining locations, as well as other on and off-campus locations that only accept UMoney (as well as cash/check/credit/debit/etc.)
You cannot withdraw cash from your UMoney account. You can request a refund if 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 If you meet the requirements, the entire UMoney balance must be withdrawn from the account. A $25.00 administrative fee is applied to the remaining balance of the UMoney Account for UMoney refunds. The refund will be issued in accordance with the University of Montana's refund account procedures. 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 Request Form.
UMoney accounts roll over from semester to semester, however accounts that have been inactive for over twelve months will be identified as unclaimed property and will be closed immediately at that time. A UMoney account is inactive if no deposits or purchases were recorded during a consecutive period of time. Under Montana State law, the funds will be processed as unclaimed property and turned over to the Montana Department of Revenue if the account is inactive for twelve months. Please see the UMoney Terms and Conditions for more information.
Under Montana State law, UMoney account funds will be processed as unclaimed property after twelve months of account inactivity. A UMoney account is inactive if no deposits or purchases were recorded during a consecutive period of time.
The Griz Card Center will email you a warning when your card has been inactive for 9 months, so you have three months to take action if you choose to do so. If your account is processed as unclaimed property, a $25.00 administrative fee is applied to the remaining balance of the UMoney Account, and the remaining amount is processed as a refund. The refund will be issued in accordance with the University of Montana's Business Services procedures. If you owe money to the University, the refund will be applied to your balance due.
For example, if your balance was $1.13, that amount would be processed as an administrative fee. You would not incur any further administrative charges for processing your account as unclaimed property.
For example, if your balance was $110.13, a $25 administrative fee would be assessed and $85.13 would be submitted to UM Business Services to be processed.
