How much does the Rambler Card cost?
The first card is free. The replacement fee for lost, stolen or damaged cards is $25.00. If the card is
defective at no fault of the user the replacement fee may be waived.
What if my Rambler Card is damaged?
Do not use a broken or cracked card in the readers at anytime! Do not under any circumstances use tape or glue
to self-repair your broken card. Tape and glue will cause the readers to permanently jam. You will need to have
a replacement card made before using your card again at any of our readers. If your damaged card causes a repair
to the Rambler Card equipment you may be liable for the costs to repair the unit. To get the maximum life from your
card, we highly recommend you protect your Rambler Card in a wallet. Carrying your ID unprotected in your back pocket
is the Number One ID Killer!
Can I get cash from my Rambler account?
No. Money in the account can be spent only at locations that accept the Rambler for payment.
What happens to the money on my Rambler Card when I graduate or withdrawal?
Refunds will only be processed upon completing a refund request form at the Bookstore upon withdrawal, graduation,
transfer, or employment termination from the University. Any refunds will be paid by check through established State
refund procedures and mailed to the address on the refund request form. Following card revocation, if no refund request
or other contact regarding a remaining balance comes from you within 180 calendar days, a 10% handling charge will be
assessed by the University, and you will be deemed to have assigned the remaining balance irrevocably to the Shepherd
University Foundation as a discretionary gift.
