Dutch Debits

Hofstra University has created a general declining balance account called DUTCH DEBITS. This account is accessed with the HofstraCard. To activate the account, simply make a deposit using cash, check, money order, Visa or MasterCard. (Get more info about your account.) You may use the Dutch Debit account at many locations on campus. The amount of each purchase is automatically deducted from the total balance. With the Dutch Debit account, you don't have to worry about whether you have enough money to purchase items in the Bookstore or at a campus event. Simply plan ahead and deposit what you feel you may need for the semester, or even the school year, into your Dutch Debit account. You will enjoy convenient purchasing at these campus locations:

  • The Hofstra University Bookstore.
  • HofstraCard Services replacement IDs and Passport Photo Services.
  • Student Health and Counseling Center.
  • Computer Repair Center.
  • Fitness Center Memberships.
