How Bradley is changing QuickCash this year

QuickCash is a prepaid debit account that students are assigned by Bradley after agreeing to the terms and conditions of the Cardholder Agreement. As stated on Bradley’s website, the account is a “convenient way to purchase goods and services at select locations.”

On July 14, Bradley’s administration sent an email to students announcing that laundry is now free for students living in campus housing. The email also confirmed that QuickCash has undergone several changes.

The changes redistribute the QuickCash section of the Meal Plan so students can have more Dining Dollars on their accounts.

“I feel like I’ve never been low on Dining Dollars or anything, but it’s nice that in an emergency I can add more money,” sophomore kinesiology major Jennifer Garcia said.

Garcia added that sometimes she doesn’t always have time to go to the dining hall and use a meal swipe during the day, so having access to more Dining Dollars has worked better with her class schedule.

Now that laundry is free, students are less likely to overfill machines and cause malfunctions, allowing residents to do laundry more often. Director of Housing and Business Operations Julie Howe stated that this change can help students with their cleanliness and, by extension,  relationships with roommates.

Howe added that other universities already offered free laundry, which aided the decision making process.

“It’s awesome for us [students] because we live over in St. James and we don’t have dining plans,” senior public health education major Samantha Scordo said. “We’re not paying for the laundry in another [housing] fee.”

Although laundry is free, printing still requires the use of QuickCash. Students can transfer their Dining Dollars to QuickCash by going to the Value Transfer station at Cullom-Davis Library or going to the cashier’s window in Swords Hall.

Along with getting assistance in person for adding QuickCash, students can also use the app Transact eAccounts. After logging into the app, students can click “deposit” to add money onto their accounts.

Adjustments to QuickCash aren’t the only changes happening around Bradley’s campus, but they seem to be one with more positive outcomes for students.
