Yes, UCard Dollars do carry over. However, UCard Dollars will expire on June 30 if your UCard has not seen activity for an entire year.

No, cash cannot be withdrawn from your UCard Dollars account.

UCard account balances of $25 or more will be refunded when a student is classified as an academic withdrawal and provides documentation, or of a student is graduating and not returning to UW Colleges after the semester is over. A refund processing fee of $10 will be assessed on the balance prior to issuing a refund.

 

If your balance is $25 or less after the refund processing fee has been accessed, we encourage you to spend it on campus prior to your departure.
