About Your Bear Card

More Than an ID

 Use your Bearcard to:

  1.          Purchase bookstore items, food, and supplies
  2.          Access UCA events, Student Health, computer labs, the HYPER, and your residence hall.
  3.          Receive discounts from participating local merchants


But don’t lose/damage your Bearcard

Physical/plastic Replacement cards cost $15.

BearCards contain an internal component. Please handle with card. Damage to your card other than normal wear and tear (holes, water, pet damage, etc.) will result in a $15 replacement fee.

If your card is stolen, you can have a free replacement with an official copy of a Police Theft Report noting that your ID was stolen with your personal property.

Replacement cards are authorized for current term students only and active employees only.
