  • Sales tax is not charged on each purchase, resulting in a 10% savings
  • Deposits of $100 or more receive a 10% bonus (e.g. deposit $100 and get $110 in your account)

Both types of funds are included as a part of our meal plans for students who live on campus. If you're a commuter student, you won't have a meal plan, but you can still take advantage of the savings offered by using your Jasper Card to pay for on-campus meals.

The Jasper Card program is administered by Manhattan College and is not associated with any bank or financial institution. Deposited funds are non-refundable and may not be transferred to another Jasper Card account.
