The MOUNTCard is your on-campus ID card and serves many other functions as well.
Such as:

  • Image - MountcardAccess Card to Residence Hall & Campus Buildings

  • Meal Card

  • Mount Money (on-campus declining balance debit account)

  • Access to the ARCC

  • Access to Sporting Events

  • Phillips Library Card

  • ATM Card (for students who link their card to their PNC Bank account)


The initial card is free but if you lose your card, there is a $15 replacement fee that must be paid at the time of purchase. The Mount card is not transferable to another student.

If your card is lost or stolen, deactivate the card by logging onto, by contacting Katie N. Trout or contact Public Safety. A Temporary card can be issued by Public Safety during non-business hours and is good until the following business day.

Mount Money

Mount Money is the on-campus declining balance account. Mount Money is the same as cash on campus. You can purchase items such as books, supplies and clothing from the on-campus bookstore, postage at the on-campus Post Office, snacks and drinks from various on-campus vending machines, fitness classes, movie passes, trips offered by various offices, food and grocery items at our on-campus dining facilities. Mount Money rolls over from semester to semester and year to year. A balance of $5 or more is refundable through Accounts Receivable when a student graduates or leaves the university.

Manage Your MOUNTCard

Manage your money by signing up for the MOUNTCard Online where you can add Money, check balances, set alerts and budget your MountMoney, Meal Plans and Flex Dollars from one place.

You may also link your MOUNTCard to a PNC Bank account to use it at any ATM.PNC Bank Logo (Some fees may apply if using ATM's other than PNC.) Campus has two PNC ATMs; one in the McGowan Center across from the Bookstore, and on the second floor of the ARCC.

A Note About Safety for Parents: 
Feel safe knowing that your child's dorm is only accessible with the MOUNTCard, and that you can always add money to the card online for books, activities, food and bills.
