Once the account is created, students may share the login information with parents or other family members who may want to add money to their Monk Bucks account.

NOTENormally you should never share account login information with anyone, but in this case the only information available is transaction history and balances. You should still be careful to only share the information with a trusted family member with whom you don’t mind having access. Without logging in, no one will be able to see your account or add money to it.



Q.) I tried to sign up and got the following message: This account is not in the system yet. Please contact the store admin.

A.) Usually, this is due to the wrong College ID number being entered into the form. Your ID number is only 9 digits long. In the past when IDs were issued, a tenth digit was added to keep track of how many cards were created. So make sure you are only entering 9 digits and ignore the 10th if one exists.

Q.) I tried to log into the Monk Bucks Portal and got the following message: This account is not in the system yet. Please contact the store admin.

A.) This usually means you have not signed up yet for a Monk Bucks Portal account. It knows this because it needs an email address in order to help in case you forget your password. Click on the sign up link (see above instructions) to gain access to the portal.

Q.) Can I use my credit card at the various food services and the campus store?

A.) Yes!
