The LMU OneCard is an intuitive campus ID card that provides students, faculty and staff with transactional access to their meal plans and laundry facilities, as well as door access to their dorm rooms, classrooms, offices, computer labs, the library and the recreation center.
You can add money to your OneCard online or via a Cash-To-Card Kiosk.
NOTE: A convenience fee of $2.00 will be applied to each deposit to cover costs incurred by the university to process the transaction. You cannot make a deposit to multiple accounts in a single transaction (for example, depositing into Flexi and S-Dollars in the same transaction), and will need to make two separate deposits which will each incur the convenience fee. Visa, MasterCard and Discover are all accepted.
Our Cash-To-Card Kiosks, or "AMC Machines", look and operate kind of like a reverse ATM, and allow you to deposit cash onto your OneCard at no charge. They can be found at the following campus locations:
You can also see these locations on our Interactive Westchester Campus Map, under the "Academic and Administrative" >> "AMC Machines".
NOTE: This is not available for Guest Deposits or deposits from the eAccounts Mobile App. You must save new payment methods while logged into the account using a computer browser.
NOTE: At least one "Payment Method" must be saved in your OneCard eAccount from a computer browser before you can schedule deposits. See the "Save a Payment Method" above for more info.

First, you need to deactivate your old OneCard to prevent anyone from using your stored funds.
Next, you can get a Temporary OneCard at the OneCard Office during normal business hours, or Public Safety after hours. It works the same way as a permanent OneCard, and will allow you access to everything except checking books out from the library. Please note:
Finally, visit the OneCard Office on the lower floor of the Von der Ahe Building during normal business hours to obtain a replacement OneCard. There is also a $15.00 fee, which can be paid through the funds available on your OneCard.
NOTE: At least one "Payment Method" must be saved in your OneCard eAccount from a computer browser before you can make deposits from the mobile app. See the "Save a Payment Method" section above for more info.
Once registered, new students will come to the OneCard Office in the Von Der Ahe Building lower level to sign the OneCard Contract, have their photo taken and OneCard printed. Students who are not yet registered for or have dropped all classes will have their OneCard suspended and unavailable for use in the OneCard system until registered.
New faculty members will have their information sent to the OneCard Office from Human Resources. The Registrar's Office must have at least one class registered for each Faculty member in Prowl (powered by the Banner platform). This generates the University ID Number, which is required for issuing an LMU OneCard. Other faculty must have a OneCard Authorization Form filled out and signed by a designated authorized HR representative and/or department director, chairperson, dean, manager, etc.
New staff members (full or part-time, permanent or temporary) will have their information sent to the OneCard Office from Human Resources. Other staff members must have a OneCard Authorization Form filled out and signed by an authorized HR representative, who will also issue the staff member a University ID Number.
Contracted LMU vendors (on or off-campus) must have the OneCard Authorization Form with an expiration date signed by the authorized department representative such as the Director, V.P. or Manager who contracts them. The OneCard Office will create a OneCard when the vendor presents the original form with a wet signature and valid government issued photo ID.
With Flexi Dollars you can make transactions at the LMU Bookstore, library, and mail center. You can make copies, grab a soda or snack from a vending machine, do your laundry in the residence halls, or make purchases off-campus at designated OneCard merchants. Some Flexi purchases are taxable whether on or off-campus, but not all of them. For example, laundry and vending machines are tax-free. Flexi Dollars carry over from year to year as long as you are actively enrolled in LMU and are available to all students, faculty and staff.
LION Dollars (L, I, O, and N Plans) are required for all students living in traditional (non-apartment) residence halls. These plans are exempt of California sales tax, are non-refundable and are purchased at the beginning of the school year. The funds must be used during the LION Plan contract year (August - July). Any remaining balance will be forfeited once the LION Plan contract year expires. For more info visit LION Plans.
S-Dollars is an auxiliary meal account option open to undergraduate students only. Balances remaining in the S-Dollars account are carried forward from year to year as long as the cardholder is actively enrolled at LMU. This plan is exempt of California sales tax, but is only good at venues on campus and is non-refundable when the student graduates or leaves the university. If a resident student has one of the L, I, O, or N Plans, they do not need an S-Dollars account, but can have one if they wish.
