Refunds: No cash withdrawals from the card account are permitted except for student payroll
money that is directly deposited to your card. Student payroll money may be withdrawn
in cash at the Skidmore Shop. A cardholder who is no longer a student or employee
of the college for any reason, including withdrawal from the college, graduation or
termination of employment, may request a refund of his/her account balance. No refunds
will be issued if the balance is less than $20.00. No refunds, other than described
in this paragraph, will be issued to cardholders. The college reserves the right
to apply balances to charges remaining on student accounts prior to making any final
refunds.Accounts with no activity during a twelve-month period are considered inactive.
Inactive accounts with balances over $20.00 will be assessed a monthly $20.00 inactivity
Lost Card Notification: If your Skidmore Card is lost or stolen, Click the "Manage your Card" link and then the "Report Lost/Stolen" link. This will immediately de-activate your card. You should also contact the Card Office during normal office hours to confirm the card loss, arrange for a replacement card, and transfer your declining balance to the new card.
Lost Card Replacement: Your first Skidmore Card is free of charge. You will be charged a $20 fee for the first replacement card, and a $25 fee for each subsequent replacement.
Protect your Card: Please treat your Skidmore Card as you would a credit or ATM card. Magnetic fields will destroy the information encoded on the Card; bending, scratching, or punching holes in the Card may also render it unreadable, so keep it in the carrier provided whenever possible.
Meal Plans: Your Skidmore Card must be presented for entry into all Skidmore dining halls. Students who do not have their Card with them can purchase a meal ticket at the door and obtain a refund at the Skidmore Card Office upon presentation of the Card.
Card Presentation: Keep your card with you at all times. You may need to present it as proof of your Skidmore status. This includes, for example, when checking out books at the library or when gaining access to the Sports Center.
Automatic Deposit: Skidmore employees can arrange to deposit automatically into the Skidmore card via payroll deducation. To participate, fill out this form.
Unauthorized use by someone other than the cardholder, as well as tampering with or altering a Card, warrants confiscation and possible disciplinary action by the College. You should have your Card with you at all times, and it must be produced upon request for properly identified College officials.
Remember that you can use your Card wherever you see the logo displayed.
