UMass Pass is the official UMass Dartmouth identification card—the one card you'll need to carry on campus.
UMass Pass: your one card at UMass Dartmouth.
It's your access for everything—from entering your residence hall to checking out books at the Library, from using the Athletic Center to eating on campus.
It's also the “way to pay” at popular off-campus locations.
UMass Pass features
- Up-to-date: Current balances available at every terminal or on your receipt after you make a UMass Pass purchase.
- Automatic: Balances roll over each semester/year.
- Debt-free: This is not a credit card: no debt involved. When you buy...you own, not owe.
- Convenient: Your parents can add money to your account knowing you can spend only at places approved by the university, on and off campus.
- Safe: If your UMass Pass is lost or stolen: no problem—if you report it immediately.
Monetary accounts on your UMass Pass
These monetary accounts can be accessed through your UMass Pass:
- UMDollars: can be used all over campus and off campus
- Food Account: can only be used at on-campus dining locations
Block Plans: new for Fall 2013
Block Plans are designed to be affordable and convenient. The blocks are loaded onto your UMass Pass, along with your Dining Dollars. Block Plans work very similar to traditional meal plans, except you are able to use as many blocks per day as you'd like.
For more information, visit Dine on Campus.
UMDollars is a prepaid, stored-value account that is accessible via your UMass Pass. It is the convenient, cashless way to pay on and off campus. You'll use UMDollars for:
- textbooks and school supplies
- restaurants, delivery, and more
The UMDollars account is a declining balance account attached to your UMass Pass. Once you are funded, simply swipe your ID card at any participating location, on or off campus.
If your UMass Pass is lost or stolen, follow the lost/stolen UMass Pass procedures.

Refund requests: UMDollars or Food Account

Refunds will only take place once the accounts are deemed eligible for refund and your Bursar account has a zero balance. At that point we will look to see if you have been officially marked as withdrawn, graduated or transferred from the Registrar’s Office.
