Funds on Your Mariner Access Card (MAC)

Several funding accounts are linked to your Mariner Access Card (MAC). The MAC card enables you to easily use these funds. Below is a brief description of these funding accounts.

Coastal Cash

When you receive your MAC card, it will already have a Coastal Cash account linked to it. You can voluntarily deposit money into this account using cash or a debit/credit card, then use your MAC card to make on-campus purchases in the bookstore and at several vending and copy machines on both campuses. You will never have to carry cash on campus again! Once funds are deposited into your Coastal Cash account, they will never expire. Important note: You will not be allowed to withdraw the funds from this account via the on-campus ATM or otherwise. You may only request the withdrawal of the funds from your Coastal Cash account upon graduation or if you permanently leave the College.
