Raider Fund$

Now you can use one card to pay registration and other student fees, buy meals, make copies in the library AND use the same card to purchase books, supplies, and personal items at Phillips Bookstore. You can even use this same card as identification to receive services at all university venues: your MTSU I.D. CARD!

A RAIDER FUND$ account is a debit card which works like a credit card. It is a money management system activated by your MTSU I.D. Card and is available to all Middle Tennessee State University students, faculty, and staff. Use your card like cash as long as there is enough money in your account to cover your purchases.

MTSU I.D. cards are already encoded to provide access to University events and activities, by making a minimum initial deposit of $10 to your personal RAIDER FUND$ account, you can turn your I.D. card into a RAIDER FUND$ card as well. Then, all you need to carry is your MTSU I.D. card. When you make a purchase, your account is activated through a card reader, and the amount of your purchase is automatically deducted from your RAIDER FUND$ account balance. Your remaining balance is displayed with each transaction so you'll always know how much money you have!

Please note: RAIDER FUND$ are maintained separately from meal plan accounts which also use the MTSU I.D. card. Policies and procedures of the meal plan accounts are those of the vendor and not of the University.

With a RAIDER FUND$ account, you can also use your MTSU I.D. to pay registration fees, campus phone bills, parking tickets, etc., at the Business Office. In other words, a RAIDER FUND$ account makes your MTSU I.D. the one card that does it all!
