- Do I have to get a new USM CARD every year?
No. Your USM CARD is issued for the duration of your stay at the University. If you change your name or status (ie, become a USM staff member), we will reissue a replacement card at no charge with the return of your current USM CARD. Upon graduation, we will issue you an alumni card at no charge as long as you return your current USM CARD.
***During the summer/fall of 2016 we changed our card stock and corresponding online lock systems. You may need to update your card if it does not look like the second card in the graphic above***
- Why should I use Husky Buck$? Can't I just use cash?
Sure, you can use cash everywhere except for on campus printing. However, by using your USM CARD for purchases you do not have to carry cash, can set aside funds for on-campus and off-campus spending while monitoring your expenditures. You can even save 7% on food purchases at all on-campus Dining Service locations.
- Where do I get a statement of my USM CARD transactions?
You can view up to 6 months of expenditures by logging on to MYCARD.
- What should I do if my card does not work?
If for any reason your card does not work, or only works in some places, bring it to a Campus Card Office so we can evaluate and resolve the problem.
- What should I do if I've LOST my USM Card?

- What does it cost to replace my USM Card?
Your first USM Card is issued free of charge. All replacement cards (lost, damaged, or stolen) incur a $20 fee. This fee is billed to student accounts and payments are required before we will reprint faculty/staff/gym and other cards.
- Why can’t you give my balance information over the phone?
In compliance with FERPA and REG-E, we cannot give any information regarding your USM Card over the telephone. You can view your information online (Click HERE) or drop by one of our Card Office locations.
