Parent Benefits

Benefits of Generals Bucks

  • Accepted – Welcomed at the places your student needs and wants to go on and around campus.
  • Convenient – Your student can make purchases with the ID card they already carry. No need to carry cash, exact change, or credit/debit cards.
  • Pre-paid – Students can only spend what they have.  So, no surprise bills for anyone!
  • 24/7 Account Access – Your student can add value, manage account information, review transaction history and more 24/7!  You too can have this access by having your student set up a Guest Account for you.
  • Easy to Add Value – Add funds to your student’s account by web, phone, mail or in-person.  If you wish to use your student’s financial aid, please complete the Generals Card Authorization Form or have your student visit the Bursar’s Office.
  • Instantly Available – Funds transferred via credit/debit card are available to your student immediately.
  • Safe & Secure – If the Generals Cash Card is lost, your student’s account can be suspended immediately and the value transferred to a new card.
  • Parent Privileges – Have your student establish a guest user account to enable you to easily add value.
  • Auto Reload – Create a schedule to automatically reload your student’s Generals Bucks account – a great budgeting tool and time-saving feature.
  • Carries Over – Unlike most Meal Plans, Generals Bucks value carries over each semester and year as long as you are a member of the HCCC community.
