BW Student Jacket Express Card Account Terms and Conditions

The Jacket Express Card account is available to each registered student. The card is the property of Baldwin Wallace University and has been issued for the card holder's use only.  Proper identification and signature are required to obtain a card.  The card is non-transferable. Lending the card to anyone or possessing another person's card is a violation of University regulations and will result in confiscation of the card and possible loss of privileges. The University is not responsible for any loss, theft, or misuse of the card. A fee will be charged for the replacement of a lost or stolen card. Cash withdrawals from a Jacket Express account will not be permitted.  The Jacket Express account cannot be used for fines, dues, fees or memberships.

A Jacket Express account is not transferable and the card must be presented in person. Additional identification or signature may be required for certain purchases or account adjustments. The card holder is responsible for any transactions that occur on the card prior to the account(s) closing. 

Under normal conditions you will not be able to overdraw your Jacket Express account(s). If under certain unusual circumstances, an insufficient balance condition might occur and the condition is not cleared, the insufficient balance amount will be billed to the card holder's BW Student Billing Account.

The University will disclose information to third parties about the account holder's account or the transfer made only: (1) in the order to comply with court orders or other applicable laws, or (2) if the account holder gives written permission.

The card holder is responsible for reporting a lost or stolen card by phone or in person to the I.D. Office during business hours. After hours contact BW Safety & Security Department.  The account holder will not be held accountable for any Jacket Express Card transactions once a card is reported lost or stolen. The account holder may be responsible for transactions occurring prior to reporting the card lost or stolen.

The terms of this agreement commence when the card has been issued and account(s) have been activated. The card and account(s) will expire upon termination of enrollment. The University has the right to stop card activity for financial or academic resolution. 

Jacket Express account holders may request between August 1-July 31 of the current year, a printed statement of transactions by going to the I.D. Office in Strosacker Hall, the Student Union. Jacket Express account balance information is displayed at most locations where the Jacket Express I.D. card is accepted and through the student's BW portal page.  Errors or inaccuracies with a card holder's account will be corrected in person at the I.D.Office.

Any remaining balance in the resident and BW Apartment student's Jacket Express Board Plan account will be credited to the student's BW Student Billing Account at the end of Fall and Spring semesters.  

Any balance remaining in the commuter student's Jacket Express account will be carried over from Fall semester to Spring semester.  A $10 processing charge may be applied for any requests to reduce or close a Jacket Express account prior to the normal closing period at the end of Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.  

All student accounts will be closed at the end of Spring semester or upon withdrawal from the school and any balance remaining will be credited to the student's BW Student Billing Account.

Summer semester accounts will be closed by the end of July, unless otherwise notified, and any remaining balance will be credited to the student's BW Student Billing Account.  Commuter students may open an account for Fall semester after summer accounts have been closed.

A deduction from a student's Jacket Express account will occur when merchandise is purchased through the online Bookstore site and payment method is with the Jacket Express Account.

Merchandise will be accepted for return according to the return policy where the goods or services were purchased. Cash refunds will not be made for returned merchandise purchased with a Jacket Express Card. A credit will be made to the Jacket Express account for the amount of the return. 

The Jacket Express account holder agrees to abide by all sales, regulations, policies, and procedures as specified by the University and the Jacket Express Card program. Violations of such rules, regulations, policies and/or procedures may result in cancellation of a Jacket Express account holder's privileges. Further changes in terms and conditions regulating the use of the Jacket Express Card and the Jacket Express Card account(s) will apply to all cards in use at that time and will supersede the terms and conditions in effect at the time the card was acquired.
