ECCash

What is ECCash?

ECCash is a way for students to use their Emerson Student Identification as a debit card for on-campus purchases. Students put pre-paid dollar amounts on the card to be used at many designated locations like the Book Store, on-campus laundry machines, Iwasaki Library, dining halls, Emerson convenience stores, and on-campus vending machines. EC Cash may also be used at some off-campus locations. The purchased amount is deducted from student’s ECCash balance.

How do I check my balance and deposit funds?

Students can log in to www.emerson.edu/eccash.  First time users will need to register their Emerson ID number and set their password.

Students can see their Board Bucks and ECCash balance and transaction history on the ECCash site. IMPORTANT: you cannot add any dollar amount to your ECCash if there is an outstanding balance on your student account. Any funds received will first be applied to the existing balance on the account.

I’m a parent. How can I deposit funds into ECCash?

Students can give "Guest Access" to four authorized users, which is a great way for parents/friends to deposit money into a student’s account. If given access, authorized users can click the Make a Deposit link, enter the student’s Emerson ID, and make a deposit without logging in.

Please do not use the online tuition payment site to deposit ECCash; ECCash payments can not be tracked through the tuition process.

Does ECCash roll over?

Yes. A student’s ECCash balance will rollover from semester to semester and into the following academic year.  If a student would prefer to have their remaining ECCash balance refunded at the end of the academic year, they may submit a request to Bills@emerson.edu from their Emerson email account. Email request must include student’s ID number and mailing address where refund check should be mailed.” 

I lost my card. What do I do?

If you lose your Emerson ID card, you can deactivate it online. To get a new card, visit the Police Department’s ID office in the Little Building, 80 Boylston Street. If you find your card before you visit the Police Department, you can reactivate it on the ECCash site.
