Bristol Buck$


The Bristol Campus Card is a declining balance account. The declining balance account is a debit account that you can use to make purchases at the cafe, hawks nest, bookstore and vending machines at the College. It functions much like a bank debit account except that cash withdrawals are not permitted. Declining balance transactions occur online; the prepaid account balance is reduced by the amount of each purchase.

Add money to the Bristol Bucks or check your amount here, or at one of the Account Management Centers (AMC).
