How much does it cost?

This card is free of charge

 How long is it valid for?

The card is valid for 3 years maximum during your education. Each time you renew your enrolment, the new school year will be displayed on it. If you are still a student when it expires, your card will be renewed free of charge.

How does the Moneo E-purse work?

To pay for your meals at the university restaurant, your printing services or your purchases at a participating Moneo business, you must first purchase credits for your card. When you make a purchase, you don’t have to type in a code because it is the money on the E-purse that is charged, and not the card-holder’s bank account.

Length of validity of the Moneo card

The expiration date of the Moneo card is indicated on the card, or for certain types of Moneo cards, on each recharge receipt (e.g. : 09/12 = September 2012). Beyond this date, the Moneo card can no longer be recharged, but the remaining balance can be used or reimbursed for 6 months after expiration. However, in the event of theft and upon presentation of a statement from the authorities, your card will be renewed free of charge.

Can I get the money stored on my card back? 

Yes, at any time and up to 6 months after the expiration date, after carrying out the required formalities.
