Don't have cash? Forgot your debit card in your residence? That's okay. Just swipe your student ID and pay.
Touch screen option: Hit the "Student ID" option and select Emerson from the list of icons. Pay as you would with a credit card.
|Pay With Vouchers|
Emerson College has a contract with a local taxi service that provides a voucher program. If you know you will be out after dark and would prefer to come back to campus by taxi rather than public transport, you may sign out a voucher at the EC Police Department Office. The cost will be billed to your student account.
For this option, please call the number listed in the voucher only, as other taxi companies will not honor the voucher. The taxi cab response time will depend on weather conditions, time of day/night, and/or day of the week.
