Using Your OneCard

Your Clark OneCard looks like an ordinary university ID, but it’s much more than that. The OneCard acts as a key to a number of services on campus including:

Your OneCard allows you to access academic buildings, many administrative buildings, and your residence hall by tapping your card on the card reader.

You can use your OneCard to make payments across campus and in the community.

Depositing Funds

Online (Students Only): Students (and family or friends who have access to their online payment module) can  add to their cash balance by making a deposit through CUWeb/Cashnet. Deposits can be made using an ACH check or a credit card (with additional fees). Please allow one hour for the deposit to be reflected in your OneCard balance.

Visit the Clark OneCard channel inside ClarkYou to check your balance or add cash to your card by clicking on the “ADD MONEY” link.

Cashier’s Office: You can also make deposits with check, case or credit card by visiting the Cashier’s Office. Please allow one hour for the deposit to be reflected in your OneCard balance. Click here for more information on the Cashier’s Office.
