This account is a record of your money deposited with the Griz Card Center (herein referred to as "us or we") and available to the cardholder (herein referred to as "you") for purchasing products and services wherever the Griz Card UMoney account (herein referred to as "Account") is accepted. You do not earn interest and you may not use the Account as a credit card, to obtain cash, or to transfer funds. An Account will be activated upon receipt of an initial deposit. Deposits are accepted by cash, money order, check, traveler's check, Visa, MasterCard. You may make a deposit in person at the Griz Card Center, by mail (no cash please), telephone (credit card only), or online at www.GrizCard.com. Acceptance of these terms is implied by receipt of your deposit or use of your Account.
There are no transaction charges. If your account balance goes below zero as a result of the system or one of its point of sale readers being off-line, you remain responsible for the payment of those purchases. In the event of a negative balance, you will be notified stating the negative balance and the location of the sale. If you present a check for payment or deposit and the check is subsequently returned for any reason, your Account will be deactivated. Returned checks and fees will be processed by Business Services according to University policy. For unpaid balances owed, University of Montana may initiate collection proceedings, as well as any attorney fees or other costs or charges necessary for collection of any or all of the balance due. If the balance is referred for collection, the account may be reported on your credit as a collection item. Your debit account may be reactivated upon restitution. The University will use all legal recourse to collect amounts due including, but not limited to, the placement of a hold on student records. Accounts that are inactive for a period of eighteen (18) months will be assessed a monthly service charge. An account is inactive if no deposits or purchases are recorded.
You must present your Griz Card in order to purchase products or services. The Card is the property of The University of Montana and is non-transferable. The Griz Card may be deactivated and/or retained when presented by any Cardholder making inappropriate or illegal use of it. Participating vendors may require additional identification to ensure that the person using the Griz Card is the actual owner of the Account.

Merchandise will be accepted for return according to the refund policy in force where the goods and services were purchased. Cash refunds will not be made for returned merchandise that was purchased with the Griz Card debit account. A credit will be made to the cardholder's Account.
Account balances are refundable once the cardholder has been terminated, graduated, or withdrawn from the University of Montana or under special circumstances which will be reviewed by a committee. This status must first be verified with the appropriate office, and then 30 days after the last deposit, the refund process will be started. Balances greater than $10.00 will be refunded. All refunds are subject to the cardholder's Accounts Receivable account being paid in full. No partial refunds will be given at any time. Refunds are subject to a $10.00 administrative charge. Please complete the Refund Request Form at the Griz Card Center. We reserve the right to close any Account that has a zero balance.
Account balances are transferable to your University Dining Services Commuter Meal Plan. The minimum balance transferred is $20.00. All transfers are subject to a $10.00 administrative charge. Transfers will be limited to one transfer per semester.
Most point-of-sale terminals are equipped to provide a receipt for each transaction. It is your responsibility to ensure that the receipt is correct. An Account statement listing recent transactions will be generated upon your personal request at the Griz Card Center.
