  • In order to be able to use your FLEXI account to make GrubHub purchases off-campus, you will have to create an account using your LMU email address. No other LMU stored value account is accepted off-campus.
    GrubHub's algorithm looks at all of the stored value accounts looking for the appropriate account for payment. This means that you will see several denied transactions in your eAccounts and one approved transaction. They are working at getting this updated so you will only see the approved transaction.
    Trying to add or use your OneCard via the website for payment is not active yet. This function is only available thru the GrubHub mobile app.

    New Students

    New students should follow the checklist and instructions provided by Enrollment Management to complete an LMU ONECARD APPLICATION.  Upon completion of the application, the LMU OneCard will be printed and can be picked up at the student's scheduled Move-in/Orientation event.  

    New Faculty Members

    New faculty members can obtain their first LMU OneCard by processing an LMU ONECARD APPLICATION. The Registrar's Office must have at least one class registered for each Faculty member in Prowl (powered by the Banner platform) to generate a University ID (UID) Number, which is required for issuing an LMU OneCard. The OneCard can then be picked up at our office in UHall during regular business hours, 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.

    New Staff Members

    New staff members can obtain their first LMU OneCard by processing an LMU ONECARD APPLICATION once their University ID (UID) number is created by Human Resources.  The UID is required before the LMU Application can be processed. The OneCard can then be picked up at our office in UHall during regular business hours, 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.

    LMU Sponsored Affiliates

    All other LMU Affiliates must be sponsored by an LMU College or Department. Please reach out to your LMU contact/sponsor to verify whether they have started the LMU ONECARD APPLICATION on your behalf.  You will receive an email asking for additional, personal information to update the application.  Once you submit your updated information, the request will be routed to the OneCard office to create the University ID (UID) which is required before the process can move forward.  Once the UID has been created, you will receive a second email to complete the application and then your OneCard can be picked up at our office in UHall during regular business hours, 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.

  • Flexi-Dollars

    With Flexi-Dollars, you can make transactions at the LMU Bookstore, library, and mail center. In addition, you can make copies, grab a soda or snack from a vending machine, do your laundry in the residence halls, or make purchases off-campus at designated OneCard merchants. Some Flexi purchases are taxable, whether on or off-campus, but not all of them. For example, laundry and vending machines are tax-free. In addition, Flexi-Dollars carry over from year to year as long as you are actively enrolled in LMU and are available to all students, faculty, and staff.

    Where can I use Flexi Dollars on campus?

    LION Dollars

    LION Dollars (L, I, O or N Plans) are required for all students living in traditional (non-apartment) residence halls. These plans are exempt from California sales tax, are non-refundable and are purchased at the beginning of the school year. The funds must be used during the LION Plan contract year. Any remaining balance will be forfeited once the LION Plan contract year expires. For more info visit LION Plans.


    S-Dollars is a supplemental meal account option open to undergraduate students only. Balances remaining in the S-Dollars Account are carried forward from year to year. This plan is exempt from California sales tax but is only good at venues on campus and is non-refundable when the student graduates or leaves the university. If a resident student has one of the L, I, O or N Plans, they do not need an S-Dollars account but can have one if they wish.
