Card Services


AC Dollar$ is a debit system for students to use to pay for many services with their Amherst ID cards. It is also a credit system that lets employees charge many of the same services, with the charges deducted from their next paycheck.

ID Cards for Non-Employees

Departments may request ID cards for non-employees, such as for vendors for door access, for temporary employees for door access or time clocks, or other uses as needed.

Door Access

IT makes available CS Gold software for building managers to use to control who can have card entry for  particular doors at specific times. The software may also be used by faculty and lab supervisors to manage access to labs for students enrolled in particular classes.

Web Laundry

AC Web Laundry provides web access to real-time laundry machine status information for campus washers and dryers when ID Cards are used for payment.
