Student Account

If you are currently enrolled as a student at the University of Minnesota and have no financial holds on your student account, you can use your U Card to charge purchases of textbooks and supplies from University Bookstores to your University student account.

Just bring your U Card and another photo ID to any University of Minnesota Bookstore and say, "charge it to my student account." They will accept your U Card just like a credit card. Your bookstore charges on your U Card are included on your monthly student account billing statement, along with other tuition and fee charges. Unpaid bookstore charges may result in registration, and transcript holds on your student record.

You may also use your student account to pay for a replacement U Card.
