Student Services Coyote Card I.D.

Your Key to USD

Your Coyote Card ID will be your single most important identification at USD. This multi-purpose ID will be your Identification, meal card and library card. You'll use your card for residence hall access, laundry and vending machines, photocopies, printing, supplies and books, and even as a debit card that can be used with campus and community vendors. The Coyote Card ID is a safe, convenient way to buy the things you need. Pay for any purchase with a single swipe - no change to carry, no receipt to sign - and because your photo is on the card, vendors are able to verify your authenticity before each transaction.

Adding Money to Your Coyote Card ID:
  • Coyote Card Online. Students, family and friends can add funds to the Coyote Card ID using our online deposit system. It is available 24/7 and accepts credit card payment methods. (Note: Family and friends must know the student's last name and campus ID number to make a deposit on their behalf using the Coyote Card Online Guest Access). Students can check balances and review transaction history using the Coyote Card Online.
