Cougar Cash & On-Campus Banking Options

Cougar Cash

Cougar Cash is a convenient method to bypass typical banking fees and hassles.  Students can load money to their student ID card by logging into my.byu.edu (then selecting "My Financial Center" on the left column under "Campus Resources") or through the BYU app. Cougar Cash can then be used for various purchases around campus.

Here are some important things to know about Cougar Cash:

  • Students are exempt from sales tax at the Cougar Eat if they use Cougar Cash.
  • Cougar Cash is the only way to pay for printing at the labs across campus.
  • Students living in on-campus housing receive a discount when using Cougar Cash to pay for using the washers & dryers associated with their housing unit.
  • Cougar Cash is a convenient way to buy snacks at vending machines without having to carry money.

Visit the Cougar Cash website for more details, video instructions on how to load money to your student's ID card, and other ways Cougar Cash can benefit your student.

Banks and ATM's On Campus

Though most students prefer Cougar Cash over banks or ATM's, there are several banking options available on campus. There is a Wells Fargo bank outlet with tellers and bankers located on the main floor of the BYU Store. There are also ATM's outside the northwest main entrance of the Wilkinson Student Center (WILK), include the following: Chase, Wells Fargo, America First, UCCU, DFCU, and Zions Bank. Collectively, these ATM's accept the following cards: Visa, Mastercard, Star, Discover, Plus, American Express, Co-Op Network, Mastercard, Cirrus, and Maestro.
