Your Money


Your Financial Aid can be accepted through BlazerNET by clicking on the Financial Aid section. In this section you will also be able to check the status of your aid to see if you have any outstanding requirements yet to be fulfilled.

Having trouble accepting your Financial Aid? Let our staff help guide you through the process.

Our staff will be more than happy to go over your account with you. When you come in to our office, we will go over each item on your account to make sure you know what that charge, or credit, means. If you plan on calling us for this service, please be sure to have your account pulled up online so that we can better assist you.

Payments can be made in BlazerNET by clicking on "Account Balance" on your Student Profile page. On that page you will see your account balance and the option to make a Credit Card Payment. Payments by check can also be made by visiting the One Stop office or the office of Student Accounting.

BlazerBucks is a declining balance account that can be used for goods and services anywhere the UAB CampusCard is accepted. Blazer Bucks accounts are available to students, faculty and staff and other individuals in possession of a UAB CampusCard. There is no minimum deposit required to activate a BlazerBucks account and additional funds can be added in varying amounts, at will. Balances in BlazerBucks carry-over from year to year until the cardholder graduates or otherwise permanently leaves the university.

Payment via the web can be made through the Manage My Account section by signing in as a cardholder or a guest and selecting the BlazerBucks Deposit tab. CampusCard Online provides a secure connection for credit card payments by VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

If you are an undergraduate students who has an account credit of $50 or more due to an excess in anticipated Financial Aid, these funds—up to $500—will automatically transfer to your BlazerBucks account on a certain date. Students may use these funds at Barnes & Noble at UAB or any other BlazerBucks vendor.
