Skyhawk Card Information

Silver Account:

Can be used at authorized campus vendors: UTM bookstore, UTM computer store, all Dining Service Locations, UTM Department of Public Safety, many of the campus vending machines, UTM Student Health, and most of the campus copier machines. The funds deposited to the Skyhawk Silver account will continue to roll over from semester to semester until the card holder withdraws or graduates from the University. Funds in the account are refundable for a $15 service fee. The fee is only waived upon graduation.

Bookstore/ Computer Store Account:

Students with pending excess financial aid use these accounts by requesting a book advance or computer advance. Book advance funds are only available for use in the UTM Bookstore in the Boling University Center. Computer Store advance funds can only be used in the UTM Computer Store. These funds roll over from semester to semester until the end of the financial aid award year. Funds in the account are refundable without a service fee by a student request or automatically at the end of the award year.

Dining Services Meal Plan:

This account is used to access the Meal Plan that is purchased from the University’s Dining Service Vendor. This account tracks the usage of the plan, based upon the number of weekly meals purchased. This plan is only good at the main dining hall, unless directed by Dining Services. The meals applied to this account are good only from week to week and do not roll over from semester to semester. This account has daily spending limits. Funds are not refundable or transferable.

Captain’s Cash/ Dining Services Declining Balance:

This account coincides with the Meal Plan. The funds applied to this account are a predefined amount that is packaged with the meal plan. These funds are only accepted at Dining Services locations (excludes vending machines). These funds are good for the semester for which they are purchased and only roll over from Fall to Spring. Funds from this account are not refundable or transferable.

Excess Financial Aid and Book/ Computer Advances:

The cardholder can authorize excess financial aid to Skyhawk Card for a book advance up to $750 and/or for a computer advance up to $1, 250. These funds must be in excess of all fees and charges due to the University for the current term. This option is only available to students if their Banner account holds a refundable balance.
