Huskie Bucks is a pre-paid debit account for students, faculty and staff connected to your OneCard. Use Huskie Bucks to pay for copying/printing, and food purchases at designated locations on and off of the DeKalb NIU campus. Simply open your account by adding funds to your card.
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 Huskie Bucks. However, checks that are written to the university and are returned as non-sufficient funds are subject to a fee.
Huskie Bucks accounts for NIU students and faculty/staff that become inactive after one year with no activity and has a balance of greater than $5.13 will receive a 2.5% administration fee. Balances less than $5.13 will be forfeited. Guests with NIU ID Campus Partner Cards or via Courtesy Card who have been inactive for one year will be assessed an inactivity fee of $5 per month, until the account balance is zero or a transaction is made.
