I-House Debit Accounts

Your online I-House debit account serves as a portal for managing and paying for the services offered at International House. At the beginning of each term your account will be pre-loaded with a non-refundable balance of meals and points.

If there are cash fund balances over $10 on accounts at the end of the term, we will refund by credit card. Balances below $10 will go to the Council Socially Responsible Scholarship Fund. If we are unable to make a refund by credit card, we will mail the refund by check, provided we have an accurate mailing address. If we do not hear back from the resident within a month, we will transfer the balance to the Council Socially Responsible Scholarship Fund to be used for future residents with financial need.
