Insufficient Funds

Under normal circumstances, purchases using the Knight Card shall not exceed the amount of deposited funds. However, in order to keep the Dining Services operational in the event of a network failure or other unforeseen malfunction, the Dining Services cash registers are set to process transactions in an offline mode, which may result in a negative balance associated with the cardholder's card account. If a negative balance occurs, the cardholder will be contacted via his or her MGA email account and will be asked to deposit funds to the affected account. If the cardholder does not respond, the Knight Card will be frozen and the negative balance will be charged to the cardholder's student account, which must be satisfied/cleared prior to registration for classes and/or receipt of grades.
