TotalPay Card Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

UC Davis now issues student financial aid funds on an ATM/debit card called the TotalPay card. This is a pre-paid Visa™ debit card, administered by ADP, that is electronically loaded with financial aid remainder funds each quarter. Students use the TotalPay card just like any other debit card -- online or in-person, anywhere a Visa debit card is accepted.

What are the benefits of the total pay card?

  • Immediate access -- your money is automatically added to your card
  • Surcharge-free access at 37,000 Allpoint™ ATMs nationwide
  • Online bill-pay
  • Text message alerts sent to your mobile device (if you choose)
  • Safer than carrying cash with the Visa® Zero Liability Policy
  • Shop online or in-person anywhere Visa debit is accepted
  • Good for the environment -- saves trees and other resources related to paper production

Where can I use my TotalPay Card?

You will be able to use your TotalPay Card at any merchant that welcomes Visa debit cards. Just give your TotalPay Card to a cashier, waiter, or attendant, and then sign or use your PIN for your purchase. If you want to get cash back, use your PIN to make a PIN-based purchase at stores that offer this service, like grocery and convenience stores. Or use your PIN at participating ATMs. You can also use the card to make purchases online, on the telephone, and by mail order.

Is the TotalPay Card a credit card?

No. The TotalPay Card is a prepaid Visa debit card. It is not a credit card. Each time you receive financial aid remainder funds, the University automatically loads your funds onto the card. Each time you use the card, the purchase amount is deducted from the amount of money available on the card.

I have an odd amount remaining on my card, how can I get this money?

Where a merchant that accepts Visa debit card allows, you can make a purchase for the odd amount remaining and pay the difference in cash or make a purchase for less than the odd amount and get cash back for the rest. You can also go to a Visa member bank to make an over-the-counter withdrawal with the teller.

Is it possible to overdraw my TotalPay Card account?

Most TotalPay card transactions are verified against your remaining card balance electronically and instantly. If a purchase amount exceeds your available card balance, the transaction will be declined. Therefore, it is rare that a cardholder would overdraw their account. To minimize the likelihood of overdrafts, you should check your available balance at mycard.adp.com. If you have a mobile device that supports text messaging, you can set up balance alert text messages. Note: Deliberate overdrawing of a card can result in card deactivation.

Is there fraud protection with the TotalPay Card?

Yes. Visa's Zero Liability policy applies to your TotalPay Card. If your TotalPay card is lost or stolen, you have the security of knowing your funds are protected from unauthorized purchases. (Note: Visa's Zero Liability Policy provides protection from unauthorized purchases. It covers U.S.-issued cards only and does not apply to commercial card or ATM transactions, or to PIN transactions that are not processed by Visa.)

Can I request another card for a spouse or trusted family member?

Yes. Call 1-877-ADP-4321 to obtain a secondary card enrollment form. You and the secondary cardholder share the same pool of funds, so each person has full and immediate access to the joint balance of the card.

Can I use my card outside of the U.S.?

Yes. Your TotalPay Card can be used around the world, wherever Visa is accepted. A nominal exchange rate fee may apply, in addition to standard out-of-network charges for international ATM use.
