PolarExpress Identification Card

The PolarExpress card is the official UAF photo identification card used by students, staff and faculty for access to UAF facilities and to make purchases.

The PolarExpress card is your identification to check out library books, vote in student elections and to access health and other student services. The card's magnetic stripe holds a unique key that provides secure access to residence halls, laboratories and the Student Recreation Center. You can deposit money into your Bear Bucks account which is linked to your PolarExpress card. Bear Bucks can be used to pay for goods at all dining services locations, vending machines, photocopiers, the Wood Center counter and the bookstore. Bear Bucks are also accepted at a variety of off campus locations. To view a complete list, visit www.uafbearbucks.com.
