Aggie Cash will no longer be accepted at UC Davis off-campus locations
The change will take place starting June 30 due to the university's partnership ending with Sodexo.
DAVIS, Calif.—On June 30, Aggie Cash will no longer be accepted on off-campus locations. According to Kraig Brady, UC Davis Student Housing food service contract manager, the change is due to the partnership ending between Sodexo, the food service provider that UC Davis Dining Services is partnered with, and the financial institution that sponsored Aggie Cash, Off Campus Solutions (OCS).
According to Brady, the banking system that OCS uses to transfer money from a student’s Aggie Cash account to a third-party vendor discontinued its service. Brady said UC Davis’ volume is too small for the bank to support the number of credit card transactions and banking fees.
While Brady has looked for other companies to sponsor Aggie Cash off campus, he said that the potential solutions he had come across were not cost-prohibitive and compliant to the regulations needed for the transactions. However, Brady maintains that the University will continue to look for solutions to reinstate this service.
