Add Funds to Student ID Card

This program is tied to your Student ID card and is good for a variety of programs. It is not a separate card. It is convenient, easy to use and easy to access. The three fund accounts are Bookstore, Gallagher Gold and Campus Funds.

*Accounts are not transferable between each other. Gallagher Gold accounts are nonrefundable and expire at the end of the spring semester by NY State Tax Law.

Payment may be added at the Student Accounts Office in the Butler Building during regular business hours or online using the Online Card Office website.

You will need to know your student ID number. If you have any questions, please go to the ID Card Office located in Vinnie's Annex, call 716.286.7310 or e-mail itsupport@niagara.edu . 

Bookstore Funds

All books will be billed to your student account through the First-Day Complete program as part of your tuition. Student may add money to the Bookstore Fund account to purchase items such as computer software, supplies, clothing, giftware and personal items from the Campus Store. Once the funds are allocated, we cannot transfer or refund the funds as long as you are still attending NU. These funds roll over from semester to semester. Any purchases made on this account that have to be returned will be credited back to your account. No cash refunds will be given.

Gallagher Gold

Included in meal plans is Gallagher Gold, which can be used for additional meals or snacks. It is also available to all commuter students. There is an 8 percent sales tax savings with each purchase at hospitality dining services on campus. Thus, if you have a craving for pizza or a taco, or just want to treat a friend to dinner, Gallagher Gold is the easiest way to satisfy your appetite and your pocketbook. Remember, because sales are tax exempt, all deposited funds not utilized by end of the academic year will be forfeited due to NY State tax law.
