Load your card

Save time and $ money

Your Campus Card is convenient and easy to use. By adding money to your card you can print on campus, or buy coffee for a friend. Pre-loaded cards work on a declining balance, like a campus debit card, and the best part, there are no retail transaction fees. It's a great tool to use for budgeting - even your family members can load your card.
