The mechanism for accessing the cardholder’s account(s) or privileges shall be the OneCard. Presentation of the card may be required to access College services, such as meal plans, library services, admission to events, and building access. Access to College facilities or cardholder’s account(s) may be denied if your account is suspended by the College for administrative reasons, you deactivate your card, or if your card’s magnetic stripe is damaged and will not scan.
The card is the property of Jones County Junior College and is non-transferable. Only the cardholder may present the OneCard for purchases and other privileges. OneCards will be confiscated if presented by someone other than the cardholder or if the card is involved in inappropriate or illegal use.

Bobcat Bucks, a Flexible Spending Account
Bobcat Bucks is an online, prepaid spending account that may be used to pay for purchases at participating on- and off-campus locations. Active accounts with a positive balance will remain open and will carry forward to the next semester or year.
The Bobcat Bucks account can be activated by making an initial deposit into the account. There are no fees to establish or use the account. No interest shall be paid on any balance in the account. Deposits may be made online at eAccounts with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover or at the Business Office on campus. Checks must be payable to Jones County Junior College or Jones College. Excess financial aid funds may be transferred to Bobcat Bucks by submitting a transfer form in OneCard Services.
Cardholders who elect to deposit funds into a Bobcat Bucks account agree to be bound by the terms and conditions disclosed herein. The Bobcat Bucks account will be administered by the OneCard Services Office located in the Administration Building.
The OneCard must be presented at the time of purchase and shall be the only means of accessing the participant’s account. Only the person pictured on the OneCard is authorized to spend money from the account. If a lost or stolen card is deactivated as outlined above, the balance is protected and may be transferred to a new OneCard. A merchant may request additional identification to guarantee that only the participant uses the account. The account holder may be required to sign a receipt for goods or services.
Photos for the College ID will only be used for legitimate University purposes (i.e. identification for access purposes, yearbook, etc.) under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines. Information regarding cardholder’s account will not be provided to third parties unless required by court order, applicable laws, public safety, or with written permission of the cardholder.
Documentation of Transactions/Cardholder History/Statement
Account holders may receive and may request a receipt at the time a purchase is made from any card reader operated by a cashier, provided however, that account holders will not receive a receipt from a card reader attached to a vending machine, a printer, or at on-campus dining facilities. The account holder’s current balance and six (6) months of transaction history is available online at eAccounts. The account holder agrees to verify the history of deposits and transactions on a monthly basis. A printed copy of the account holder’s transaction history may be requested at the OneCard Office.
To minimize potential loss to the participant, unattended locations/applications, such as vending, laundry, and printers, may impose a daily spending limit. Except as outlined above for unattended devices, there is no daily limit on the number of transactions or their dollar total, up to the available balance.
The account holder agrees and understands that there will be no cash withdrawals or refunds from active Bobcat Bucks accounts. Cash refunds will not be issued for returned merchandise purchased with Bobcat Bucks. Bobcat Bucks accounts will be credited for the amount of the return. Merchandise must be returned to the location where goods or services were purchased and returns are subject to the return policy of the merchant.
Bobcat Bucks accounts are not intended to simulate a checking or savings account, and therefore, requests for refunds will only be granted to students upon graduation or withdrawal from the College. Students may also request a refund at the end of each semester. Faculty and staff may obtain refunds upon request at any time. In addition, all College debts must be satisfied prior to a refund being processed. All requests for refunds upon graduation, withdrawal from the College or termination of employment by the College must be received within one year of graduation, withdrawal or termination. Any funds left in an account longer than one year are forfeited and become the property of the College.
Refund requests must be submitted in writing to OneCard Services or the Business Office. Approved refunda will be distributed within 10 business days from the last day of the semester. Refunds are made payable to the account holder and mailed to the current address on file. Refunds will not be processed for less than $25. You are encouraged to spend smaller balances.

If a change reduces, limits, or restricts the account holders' rights under the terms and conditions, the college will give at least thirty (30) days prior notice by mail.
