PAYING FOR JOBS:

Students must pay before they receive their jobs. IDs cannot be held as collateral. No money, no job. No exceptions.

The OPS only accepts the flex account as a form of payment. We do not take accounts, cash, credit/debit cards, or checks.

Money can be placed on a student's flex account card or student ID card using the machine on the 6th floor of Avery in the glass room next to the men's restroom. Money can also be added to an account online using SSOL. Please note that the online SSOL service accepts credit cards but takes 4-6 hours for the money to appear on your card. The 6th floor machine puts the money in your account instantly but accepts cash only.
