What is Marketplace?

Marketplace lets students, parents, alumni, and other shop online, register for events, or make donations at the time most convenient for them.

uStores

Marketplace uStore is a secure avenue to accept on-line credit card payments for events, items and general payments. Marketplace uStores let students, parents, alumni, and others shop online, register for events at the time most convenient for them.
