The WolfCard (UAA ID card) is the official photo identification card used by students, staff and faculty. The card includes the name, a photograph of the individual and their UA Identification number. The WolfCard allows students and staff to check out library books, access the Health Center, vote in student elections and access other student services. Additionally, any alumni that show their Alumni Wolfcard will get 25% off all Esports Lounge costs, including but not limited to hourly or hour bundles, day passes, and weekend passes.

The card is also used so that individuals can get into secure access locations across campus. View the map where your WolfCard will be needed for door entry!

  • WolfCard Account

    Your WolfCard may have three separate accounts: Wolfbucks, Dining Dollars, and a Printing Allocation. 

    • All cards will have a Wolfbucks account. The account will hold funds which can be spent at any machine or dining location which accepts the card.
    • Students living in housing may receive Dining Dollars as part of their meal plan. These dollars are held in the second card account. Dining Dollars can be spent only at University Dining locations.
    • Each semester a student enrolls, $15  will be deposited into their Printing Allocation. The Printing Allocation is to be used exclusively for printing at University print stations.

    Wolfbucks can be deposited to your card accounts using the Unattended value transfer stations located in the copy room on the first floor of the Consortium Library, SMH, HSB, and in the Housing Commons. The WolfCard office can also add money to your account. To deposit Wolfbucks on to your card online (with a credit card) or check balances, please visit the Wolfbucks online page.

    Your WolfCard office can provide a statement showing card transactions and account balances. Statements will not be provided automatically. One statement per month is free. Cardholders will be charged a fee for additional statements issued for any given month.

    Remember, Wolfbucks are not refundable unless you graduate or fully and officially withdraw from all classes. Please see the WolfCard policies document for specific information.

    All Dining Dollars and Print Allocations are removed from card accounts at the end of the semester.
