A Community-Wide Account (CWA) is a declining-balance account that can be used to pay for goods and services at Brewer Bookstore, dining service locations, Stafford Fitness Center/Outdoor Programs, vending machines (limited to a maximum of $20 per day), and participating off-campus vendors. The CWA can also be used for payment of miscellaneous charges on a student account and for sales by student groups for apparel, registration fees, sale of tickets for campus events and donations to charities/class gifts. The minimum deposit into a CWA account is $25; maximum is $2,000. Cash withdrawals from the CWA account are not allowed.

1. Make a deposit online at CWA using a credit card or debit card. The student St. Lawrence Campus ID number (provided in the letter that accompanies this New Laurentian Guide) is needed to complete the transaction.
2. Make a deposit at Brewer Bookstore or the student financial services office.
