College campuses across the country are launching their own debit cards that don’t have overdraft fees. Parents or students at John Carroll University load money onto the Carroll Cash card. It can be used on campus and off campus at places like pizza restaurants or CVS. If the student loses the card, they can cancel it online immediately.
It’s a good way for a parent to keep tabs on what their student is spending money for on campus. It also allows a student to see how money flows out of the account quicker than it comes in.
Many colleges offer a version of Carroll Cash. Just ask.
