Wildcat Dollars can be used off-campus!


Wildcat Dollars is an optional spending account operated by the College Association at Utica/Rome and is accessed through your SUNYIT ID Card (SUNYIT Card). Wildcat Dollars may be used on campus (retail dining, the bookstore or selected vending machines) and at participating off campus vendors. Wildcat Dollars can be added to your SUNYIT Card in one of three ways:

  • Via the website - register on line to add money to your Wildcat Dollars account. Add as little as $10.00 up to $100.00 in $10.00 increments and up to $500.00 in $20.00 increments for amounts over $100.00 using a credit card or a bank debit card.

  • Via Cash, Check, or Credit/Debit Card - visit the College Association Office in Kunsela Hall - Room A217.

  • Via Student Accounts - At the start of each semester, Wildcat Dollars may be purchased online through Banner Web - Student Services - Wildcat Dollars. An optional charge can be requested to be added to the student's account in an amount equal to the available excess financial aid on the account up to a maximum amount of $600.00 (the financial aid cost of attendance for books and supplies). This option is not available if the student does not have excess financial aid. This process replaces the book voucher process.

The optional spending account is a fully refundable program. Your payment to add Wildcat Dollars to your SUNYIT Card places a cash balance for purchasing convenience on your SUNYIT Card. Wildcat Dollars cannot be accessed for cash advances at any of the on campus or off campus merchants that accept Wildcat Dollars as payment. See below for the cash refund policy. If you return merchandise purchased with Wildcat Dollars, a credit will be placed on your account increasing the cash balance on the card by the amount of the refund. Cash refunds for returns will not be issued. All purchases made with Wildcat Dollars are subject to sales tax where applicable.
