Loyola has two different debit accounts: Evergreen Account and Dining Advantage Account.

Evergreen Account

The Evergreen Account is a flexible spending account that is a part of the campus-wide Evergreen Card (ID). It is a pre-paid debit card that eliminates the hassle of carrying cash on campus. All purchases with the Evergreen account are subject to Maryland State Sales Tax of 6%. Deposits can be made in person at student administrative services located Maryland Hall, Room 140, Monday - Thursday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Friday, 7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. or online.

The Evergreen account can be used at select off campus retailer locations. See the latest list of retailers.

Cash withdraws are not permitted from your Evergreen account.

When using the Evergreen Account, a PIN number is entered upon making purchases at most locations. Everyone is assigned a temporary PIN number. Prior to using the Evergreen account, the cardholder should come to SAS to pick their own personal secret number.

The card can be used to purchase goods and services at the following on campus locations:

  • Bookstore
  • Health Center
  • Information Services
  • Post Office
  • Refectory
  • Theater Box Office
  • Recreational Sports
  • Student Activities
  • Vending Machines
  • Photocopiers
  • All Food Services
  • Laundry Machines

Declining Balance Account

The Declining Balance Account allows a family to deposit money into an account that can only be used at dining facilities on campus. For a list of on campus dining options, visit the dining services website.

Funds may be deposited in the account at any time in student administrative services or online. Deposits into this account will roll over from semester to semester, but not from year to year. Any money remaining on the account at the end of the school year will be forfeited. A benefit of the Declining Balance Account is that all purchases are exempt from the 6% Maryland State Sales Tax. For additional information, contact student administrative services at 410-617-5047.
