Hokie Passport Account
The Hokie Passport Account is a discretionary flexible spending debit account that is available to Virginia Tech faculty, staff, students and select affiliates. Hokie Passport Account funds can be used to access residential vending machines, laundry facilities, print labs, campus bookstores, dining centers and numerous retail locations on and off campus. Convenience, security and flexibility are just some of the benefits of the account. For a complete list of vendors that accept the Hokie Passport Account, click here.
Convenience and Flexibility:
A Hokie Passport Account will allow you to access snack and drink machines as well as the washers and dryers located in the residence halls. Additionally, on-campus dining facilities accept the Hokie Passport. With the Hokie Passport Account you no longer have to carry cash, worry about how much money is in your checkbook, look for change to buy a soft drink or quarters to do laundry. To meet the needs of students, faculty/staff and wage employees, the Hokie Passport Account is accepted in many area locations including grocery stores, gas stations, dry cleaners, bookstores, and restaurants.
The Hokie Passport Account allows you to carry less cash. Funds may only be accessed with your Hokie Passport ID. If the card is lost or stolen, contact the Hokie Passport Office, or the Virginia Tech Police Department immediately to disable the account until the card is found or replaced. Once disabled, the account cannot be used for purchases until the card is reactivated by presenting valid photo identification at the Hokie Passport Office. As added security feature, the picture ID allows identification by merchants. To limit unauthorized use for purchases at locations where there is no merchant identification, i.e., laundry and vending facilities, there is a $15.00 per day maximum limit.
