Using your YU card has many benefits. It is more than just a piece of identification with your photo on it. It also serves as a campus debit card. You can add money to it and make purchases on campus or access certain deals and discounts. Services you can access using the YUcard are Library, recreation facilities, exams, food and meal plans. When you load money on your card, it is called Flex dollars.

Anytime you use your YU card to make a purchase at the bookstore, you earn 5% or more of that amount in scholar dollars, which can be redeemed towards the purchase of any item at the bookstore. There are special off-campus discounts for YU card holders at places like Boston Pizza and Chili’s. Managing your YU card is easy. You can add money and check your balance online.
