Cashless Payments Encouraged on Campus

Making purchases with credit/debit cards has become the most widely used form of payment. During these unprecedented times, Auxiliary Services departments are implementing new guidelines and standards to support social/physical distancing and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Auxiliary Services locations are encouraging patrons to use cashless methods of payment when making purchases throughout all of Georgia Southern University. Credit/debit cards, mobile payment methods (such as Apple Pay or Google Pay), and EagleXpress are just a few examples of payment methods to use at restaurants, stores and more.

Help Auxiliary Services and Georgia Southern #DoRight and stay safe this semester. “Go Cashless” when you purchase books, buy lunch or pick up your prescriptions from the health center pharmacy.
