Early in this semester officials decided to modify the uses of students’ One Card Flex accounts. Specifically, students can no longer use their Flex accounts to purchase money orders at the Campus Post Office. Senior Manager of Contracts & Project Management Jack Noon explained, “This spring the Campus Post Office, with the assistance of the Treasurer’s Office and Auxiliary Operations, implemented the ability for students to use their Flex funds for U.S. Postal Service activities which were anticipated to be low dollar value transactions such as postage stamp purchases, mailing charges and packaging purchases. This was in response to students’ requests for this capability.”This policy was changed because students were using their Flex accounts to purchase money orders, often for themselves. This particular transaction violates a Flex account policy and therefore was disabled.If one walks into the Campus Post Office he will see a sign on the wall to the left of the Post Office window that says, “Students can now use their Flex accounts to purchase money orders.” One will also see a contradictory sign on the Post Office counter explaining that students cannot use their Flex accounts to purchase money orders. This sign says if anyone has any questions to contact Dean of The College William Green or Dean of Students Jody Asbury, neither of whom were directly involved in the policy change. The Post Office employees were unaware of the reasoning behind this policy change. They were simply instructed to point to the updated sign on the Post Office counter.This lack of clarity at the Post Office inevitably causes confusion. When asked about the policy change, most students did not even know about the original policy.Reporting by Brian Lasonde.
