Gael Flex Dollars

Saint Mary's College and Sodexo created the "Gael Flex" program to be the ultimate compliment to your college dining experience.

Your Saint Mary's ID card can be used for dining on campus, but we realize that students and parents want more. So we partnered with your favorite off-campus merchants to give you the ultimate flexibility, variety and value you deserve.

Use your "Gael Flex" account on and off campus and get more spending power:

  • Accepted at Cafe Louis and Oliver Hall and off campus at select merchants
  • Special on and off-campus discounts and promotions, when available
  • Flexibility to eat when and where you want
  • Easy to budget, track and add money
  • Allows for on- and off-campus usage
  • Safer than cash or credit cards
  • Parent peace-of-mind
  • Your Saint Mary's ID does it all

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get Gael Flex?

You've already got it. The "Gael Flex" system is BUILT RIGHT INTO your existing Saint Mary's ID card. It's there, and ready to roll. Enjoy total freedom without spending your cash or charging up credit cards. Your "Gael Flex" account gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want, on or off campus.

How does "Gael flex" work?

Simple. Your Saint Mary's ID can be used like a debit card. The card gets swiped at the time of purchase at a participating location, the amount is deducted from your "Gael Flex" account and the balance is automatically adjusted. No more digging into your spending money, late night stops at the ATM or charging up credit cards.  You can swipe your card all over campus and at participating merchants to pay for the things you eat everyday.

How do I sign up?

No need to sign up if you already have a meal plan! "Gael Flex" is already on your Saint Mary's ID card. If you wish to buy "Gael Flex" and add money to your ID card, please follow the directions to purchase on line through Off Campus Solutions.

How do I add money to my "Gael Flex" account?

If you would like to add flex dollars to your ID card, you will need to first register by going to the following link:  Click on "sign up now" directly under the login prompt.  

You do not have to add flex dollars today but if you want to add them in the future, or if you want your parents or others to be able to add dollars for you, you will need to complete the registration before that time.     Remember when registering to follow the on screen instructions which includes adding two leading zeros to the front of your 7 digit student/staff/faculty ID number (ex: 000123456).   Once you register and log in  to the "GET SMC Flex Dollar" site (using your Saint Mary's email address as your user ID) you will not only be able to buy flex, but also to see what venues will be available for you with your flex dollars.  To access this, click on "Where can I use my funds".  You can also request funds from parents filling in the information under "Ask for Flex Dollars" on the home screen.   View our Further Instructions document for more information.

What do I do if I lose my Saint Mary's ID card?

The first thing you need to do is come by Oliver Hall to see if your card has been found. We can check to see if your Saint Mary's ID card has been turned in to us and if not, we will change your issue number so no one else will be able to use your ID card in our readers. This is especially important if you have a Meal Plan and Flex dollars. To replace your ID card, visit the College Business Office in Filippi Hall anytime during our regular business hours. There is a $25 replacement fee. You will need your ID to be able to eat.
