Pony Express, the pre-paid debit account available to all students, will be discontinued at the end of the semester. While Pony Express accounts were honored at all dining facilities on the SMU campus and a few other establishments off-campus, the program will be ending on May 17, 2017. Going forward, Flex Dollars is the recommended alternative for dining on campus without a meal plan. For Copy and Print funds, students will need to begin using their PaperCut account for their printing charges. 

Pony Express Balances

Deposits to Pony Express will still be available until April 14, 2017. Any funds in a Pony Express account must be used by May 17, 2017. To check the balance on your Pony Express account, please visit idcard.smu.edu.

Pony Express Alternatives

  • For dining uses on campus, we recommend Flex Dollars. Flex is available at SMU.CampusDish.com.
  • For Copy and Print funds, we recommend PaperCut. Log in to printing.smu.edu to access your Papercut account.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Parking and ID Card Services Office at (214) 768-7275 or in person at the Hughes-Trigg Student Center.
