Account Descriptions

The PrattCard is a payment card that supports multiple monetary accounts. Funds are added to different accounts depending on where you want to use your PrattCard to make purchases. Please choose carefully as deposits cannot be transferred or refunded after they are made. For a current list of locations that accept the following monetary accounts, click on the PrattCard Accepted At link.

To add funds to your PratCard accounts, sign in and click the Make A Deposit link. Acceptable forms of payment include credit, debit, or gift cards with a Visa or Master Card logo.

For PrattBucks account only, add funds using cash at the Cash Station located in the Machinery building, outside the MCC Lab. Or, simply use the Cash Station to check the current balance of your PrattBucks account. The Cash Station accepts $1, $5, $10, $20 and does not dispense change.

Meal Plans
Pratt's dining facilities offers several meal plan options on a debit card system, where the meal plan balance decreases with each purchase made using the PrattCard. The cost of a meal plan is fixed and all meal plans have the option to add funds at any time during the semester in $25 increments. No refunds are given for any value left in a meal plan account at the end of the meal plan term.

Since purchases with a meal plan are not charged tax, you can save almost 10% compared to cash purchases.

To select a meal plan option that fits your needs or to upgrade to a higher value plan, please visit the Office of Residential Life and Housing located in Willoughby Hall. To find out more about dining facilities, hours of operation, daily menus, and meal plan options; visit the Dining at Pratt webpage at

The PrattCard functions as a prepaid debit card too! Money can be added to your card in an account called PrattBucks. These funds may be used to make purchases at participating off-campus and on-campus locations including the Pratt print labs and copy stations.

To start using PrattBucks, simply add funds to your PrattCard. No cash withdrawals may be made from the card. As you make purchases with your card, payments will be deducted from your PrattBucks account. No transactions will be processed once you have exhausted the balance on your account.

PrattBucks never expire! Your account will roll over to the following semester or year for students, faculty and staff. Any balance in the PrattBucks account remains active until you deplete the balance or the balance is forfeited.
