Bristol Buck$


The BCC Campus Card is a Declining Balance Account. The Declining Balance Account is a debit account that you can use to make purchases at the cafeteria, snack bar, 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.

You may add Bristol Buck$ to your BCC Campus Card online, at one of the Account Management Centers in the Farley Learning Resources Center, at the Stoico Business Technology Building or at the Student Accounts office in the Commonwealth College Center.
The eAccounts Online Card Office allows you to:

  • Check Account Balances
  • Add Bristol$ to your account
  • View and print account statements
  • View Recent Transactions
  • Report your card lost

AMCs are self-service terminals and allow you to:

  • Add Bristol Buck$ using cash or credit card
  • Check the balance of your Bristol Buck$, Financial Aid Book Advance, and other accounts

The BCC Campus Card is needed for Financial Aid book advances and may be used for book purchases in the bookstore (you may NOT use Financial Aid book advances to purchase merchandise or food in any location).
