What is the Rocket Card (ID)?

The Rocket Card (ID) is the official UToledo identification card that provides students, faculty and staff door access and serves as a payment card on and off campus at accepting locations. The card features three types of monetary funds, where it acts as a debit account: Rocket Dollars, Dining Dollars and financial aid. The Rocket Card tracks usage in real time and allows you to add funds, check balances and freeze your card if it becomes lost or stolen. 

What are Rocket Dollars?

Rocket Dollars can be loaded onto your Rocket Card (ID) at any time and are used for purchases at any accepting locations. To view accepting locations, please visit: Rocket Dollar balance will carry over from semester to semester and will stay open until you decide to close it. 

What are Dining Dollars?
