Transactions:  There are no charges assessed to the cardholder for any TigerStripe Account transactions.

Any returned item creates indebtedness to the University and may affect enrollment.

See Lost, Stolen or Damaged cards for related fees.

V.        Cardholder Liability

The cardholder is responsible for all charges made to the card; even if the card or account number is lost or stolen.  Therefore, it is important to notify TigerOne Card Services immediately upon discovering loss or theft. Clemson University is not responsible for any loss or expense caused by loss, theft, or misuse of the TigerOne Card or the TigerStripe Account.

VI.        Refunds and Returns

Merchandise may be accepted for return in accordance with the refund policy in effect at the place of purchase of the product(s) and service(s).  Any refund(s) accepted by the place of purchase shall be credited to the cardholder’s TigerStripe Account. No cash refunds will be made for any purchase made with the TigerOne Card.

VII.        Receipts and Statements

If the point-of-sale terminal is equipped to provide receipt, the cardholder will receive a receipt in accordance with the merchant’s policy; it is the cardholders’ responsibility to ensure that the amount charged by the merchant and the receipt are correct.  A TigerStripe Account activity statement is available online at the TigerOne Online Card Office at any time.  In addition, a monthly online TigerStripe account activity statement will be available to the cardholder.  The cardholder will be notified via e-mail when the statement is ready.

VIII.        Account Closure

  1. The TigerStripe Account will be closed if the cardholder ceases to be a student, employee, or affiliate of Clemson University.  For a student, the TigerStipe account will be closed and any remaining balance will be refunded only after completing the necessary form found at clemson.edu/tigerone or in person at the TigerOne Card Services office.   An employee may close the TigerStripe Account only upon termination of employment at Clemson University by completing the necessary form at the TigerOne Card Services office. 

Note: An employee can discontinue adding funds to his/her TigerStripe Account via Payroll Deduction at any time by contacting the TigerOne Card Services office. Termination of payroll deduction will take effect on the next available payroll cycle from date of request.

  • No refunds will be issued for TigerStripe Account balances of $50.00 or less.  Clemson University will mail a check in the amount of the remaining balance to the cardholder at the permanent address on record with the University. The University Bursar's Office reserves the right to use this refund to offset any outstanding University balance on your account.  Please allow approximately four to six weeks for any refund to be processed.
