How do I add Hurricane Gold Dollars to my TU ID Card?
Students/staff simply set a gold dollar amount (minimum of $10.00) and prepay at the Business Office or cash deposits are accepted automated terminal located in the Student Union. Hurricane Gold Dollars can also be deposited online (with a minimum deposit of $25) with your Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express card or by e-check using our secure payment form. When the Gold Dollar limit is reached, students can add money to their account.
If Hurricane Gold Dollars remain in the account at the end of the academic term, they will be carried over into the upcoming academic term balance. Students/staff may request a refund of any balance remaining in their account at any time.
