New Students Bear Bucks Account News!

New Students can open their Bear Bucks account from Webstac under the Billing & Bear Bucks tab. Just select Bear Bucks and click on ‘Enroll in Bear Bucks’.

You will have the option to bill your student account during the setup process but that option won’t be available again until the start of the semester. In the meantime, starting the day after you open your account, you will be able to load funds into your account using a credit or debit card from GET.

Students can obtain an ID card from Card Services, located in Women’s Building, Rm. 002. Campus Card Services is available Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Students can bring in a damaged ID card to exchange for a new card at no cost but there is a $25 fee to replace a lost student ID card. Another photo ID is required to obtain your first ID card or a replace a lost card.

A minimum deposit of $1.00 (cash or check only) is required to open an account.

Using an ID Card

Students are able to spend Bear Bucks on Residential Life- and Greek Life-managed laundry services, vending purchases at select locations and printing services from most WUSTL libraries print stations and school computer labs. Select on-campus and off-campus businesses also accept Bear Bucks. Learn more about how to use Bear Bucks funds on your card.

Undergraduate students may enroll online after July 1 if they have received their Student ID number and their WebSTAC password. (This feature is not available to students enrolled in University College or IE Division; however, students may make a cash or check deposit in the Campus Card Services office.) Graduate and professional students may enroll online after they have received their Student ID number and their WebSTAC password.

Bear Bucks are accepted at all three of the School of Medicine dining locations. Bear Bucks may also be used at all Danforth Campus dining locations when undergraduate meal plan points have been depleted. Purchases in the WUSTL dining locations are tax exempt.

If an ID card is lost/stolen outside of business hours, please deactivate your account on WebSTAC immediately and report your card as lost or stolen to WUPD. If you need a temporary meal card during this time, please contact your Residential Advisor (RA).
