Jacket Express Card
The Jacket Express Card is your official form of identification at Baldwin Wallace and an essential part of campus life for all students. It is your passport to campus-wide privileges, providing maximum security and ease of use. The Jacket Express Card is your key access into some facilities and residence halls. It should be carried with you at all times.
Your Jacket Express Card can be used for purchases at numerous campus locations including dining halls, vending machines, bookstore, laundry machines and copy machines. Select off-campus merchants in Berea accept the Jacket Express Card for payment.
Obtain Your Jacket Express Card
You will receive your Jacket Express Card during new student orientation. If you are unable to get your Jacket Express Card during orientation, you can obtain your card through the ID Office during normal business hours. A signature and valid photo ID (i.e., driver's license) will be required when picking up your Jacket Express Card.
Jacket Express Meal Plan
Baldwin Wallace offers a declining-balance meal plan. At the beginning of each semester, a predetermined amount is deposited to your Jacket Express Card. Every time a purchase is made, the amount is deducted from your account. This plan offers students greater flexibility in controlling their money, plus students only pay for what they eat. Unlike most colleges, BW reimburses students for any unused funds at the end of the school year.
Students living in BW residence halls or BW apartments automatically receive a Jacket Express Board Plan at the beginning of each semester. Commuter students may open an account once registered for classes.
The ID Office can answer any questions about the account on your Jacket Express Card.
