Ole Miss has turned to CBORD’s GET solution as the online portal from which students can manage their Ole Miss One Cards. The move will see the university leave the long used Manage My ID web portal.
According to a report by The Daily Mississippian, Ole Miss has been using Manage My ID as its online student portal since 2008, enabling students or parents to load money to the university’s Flex and Express dollars accounts. The introduction of the GET system will provide students with a new means to manage their One Card accounts, as well as enable students to search for dining locations, view account activity and report lost or stolen cards.
Ole Miss will also leverage GET’s request funds function that enables students to, with a recipient’s email address and name, request money to be placed on select Flex dollars or Express account along with a message. Student account deposits will still carry a $2.50 service fee.
Ole Miss intends to fold in additional GET features over time as the campus adjusts to the transition. “One that we will be testing in the fall at some of our on-campus food locations is a food ordering app,” said Manager of contractual services, Kathy Tidwell, in a Daily Mississippian interview.
A primary goal for the initiative was to make the changeover from Manage My ID to GET as seamless as possible for students. “There has been very little feedback, and we linked the two systems so most would have no issues,” Tidwell said.
