Flexline Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start a Flexline account?

At the time your photo was taken for your Stout BlueCard, a Flexline debit account with a zero balance was created. To activate your Flexline account make a deposit of $10 or more. Deposits may be made by cash, check, debit/credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover) or applied to your University Student Fee Account. Flexline Account funds carry forward continually. Accounts with no activity over a 12-month period will be closed. 

Can I make a cash withdrawal from my Flexline account?

No. These funds are intended to be used on-campus and are not available for withdrawal while a faculty/staff member is employed.

What happens to the remaining balance on my card?

If you are no longer employed at UW-Stout, cardholders can no longer deposit into the account, only expend the remaining funds. All funds remain active in the card holder's account until there has been no activity for a 6-month period. After six months, any remaining funds are subject to a monthly service fee. Cardholders may also request to close the account. Status with the university will be confirmed prior to processing the account closure request and issuing a refund. Refund requests must be made by completing the Account Closure Form online or submitting a completed Account Closure Form to the Campus Card Office. Any remaining fee, will be processed according to the card holder's current preference selection.
