Opening Your Account

Huskie Bucks is a pre-paid debit account that is opened with the university and accessed with your OneCard ID. It may be opened in one of the following ways:

  • Students, faculty and staff: Open a Huskie Bucks account at any time by completing an account agreement form and returning it to the OneCard ID Services Office (in person, or by mail/fax). Once your account has been opened, you may deposit funds using one of the many deposit options offered
  • Residence hall students: Students staying in the residence halls have the option of opening a Huskie Bucks account when selecting a meal plan for the year. This option is only available if you select the corresponding box on the contract through Housing & Residential Services. The only amount available is $200, and it will be billed to you as part of your Housing charges. Please note: There is a timeframe for when this option is available. Also, when completing a contract for a full year, $200.00 will be added once at the beginning of the fall semester and then once again at the beginning of the spring semester. For more information contact Housing & Residential Services.

Minimum balance

There is no minimum balance required to maintain a Huskie Bucks account. However, as this is a debit account and not a credit account, the balance must not drop below $0.00.


There are no annual fees, over-limit charges or late payment fees with the Huskie Bucks Program. However, checks that are written to the university and are returned as non-sufficient funds are subject to a fee.

Huskie Bucks accounts with a balance of $5.00 or more which show no activity for a period of one year will be charged an inactivity fee of $5.00 per month. This does not mean you will be billed each month, but rather this inactivity fee is subtracted from the remaining balance of your Huskie Bucks account until it reaches $0.00 at which time the account is closed. For more information, see the last page of the Huskie Bucks Account Agreement.
