Use and Ownership of the Photo ID card
You are the only person authorized to use your card. The card is non-transferable and is the property of the University. It is the cardholder’s responsibility to protect and maintain the condition of his/her card. This card is for the purpose of identification and transaction of University of Nebraska at Omaha’s business. It should be carried when on University property and presented upon request.

Personal information collected for the card, including your image, will only be used for University purposes and within established guidelines. Please also view our Photo Release Policy. Data collected on the use of the University facilities and services by an individual cardholder will be treated in the same manner. Information regarding the cardholder will not be provided to third parties unless required by law or with written permission of the cardholder.
Lost or Stolen Cards
The cardholder is responsible for immediately reporting a lost or stolen card. Reports must be made either in person or by phone by calling 402.554.2220. The University is not responsible for the use of a lost or stolen card. Once the card is reported lost or stolen, we will deactivate your card on campus. Once a card has been replaced due to loss or theft, it cannot be reactivated should it be found at a later date. The replacement fee for lost or stolen cards is $15.00. (Effective July 1, 2018)
Money placed in your account with MavCARD Services creates a prepaid services declining balance account (called MavMONEY). You may use your card as a declining balance card where accepted on & off campus, provided funds are available in your account. Funds deposited in your account are non-transferable. Funds can be added to your account in person at MavCard Services during regular business hours (Monday – Friday 8:00 A.M.to 5:00 P.M., except holidays; business hours are subject to change without notice). Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express. Funds can be added to your account at a MavMONEY Cash to Card machine on campus. If you attempt to use your card when there are insufficient funds available, the transaction will be denied. Deposits will be posted to the cardholder’s account for immediate use. There is no earned interest associated with your account. The cardholder is responsible for deposits made by credit card or check that do not clear as well as purchases made against the deposit. Returned checks and rejected charge card transactions will be immediately removed from your account. The cardholder will be charged a $30 fee for each returned check, which may be assessed directly against your declining balance account. The University reserves the right to place accounts on hold in the event a deposit is returned or rejected.
You are responsible for use of the card in accordance with instructions at each location where the MavCARD is accepted. Debits resulting from your failure to properly utilize the card are your responsibility as the cardholder.
Debiting your Account, Refunds and Deactivation
The University will not debit your account other than in accordance with transactions authorized through the use of your card or as permitted under the terms of this agreement. MavCARD Services will provide account history only when requested in person by the cardholder. No periodic printed statements are issued for the account. The cardholder must report any suspected account errors within 30 days of the transaction date in question.
If your declining balance account has no activity for a period of two (2) years, you agree that the amount in the declining balance account will be forfeited to the University and shall become the property of the University.
No cash withdrawals from the card account are permitted. A cardholder who wishes to deactivate his or her account or is no longer a student or employee of the University for any reason, including withdrawal from the University, graduation or termination of employment, may request a refund of his/her account balance, subject to an administrative fee of $15.00. No refunds will be issued if the balance is less than $15.00. The refunds will be processed and mailed within two weeks to your permanent address as it appears in the University’s records.
