How To Use Your OneCard
Your OneCard has two magstripes on the back of it and a contactless chip embedded within the card. It is important that you do not punch a hole into your card or misuse your card in a way that will damage the magstripes or the chip.
The holographic magstripe is used to access your OneCard Money Network® account IF you have chosen to activate this account. This account is a fast and easy way to receive your refunds from SLCC. Use this magstripe to access your funds at an In-Network ATM or by using the OneCard at locations accepting Discover®. Learn more about your Money Network® account.
The black magstripe on your OneCard gains you access to your Bruin Bucks account which can be used at all Food Service locations, Bookstore, Copy Centers, Library, The Lair, Quick stops, computer labs (for printing), and LAC. If you are a student who has meal plan accounts, Aviation accounts etc, this stripe is the one you will use to access your funds on campus! Functionality through the black magstripe will continue to work as long as you are a current student, faculty or staff even if the expiration on the face of the card has passed.

Your OneCard is now your UTA bus pass if you choose to purchase either a 30-day or semester service. It is important that you do not punch a hole into your card or misuse your card in a way that will damage the magstripes or the chip.
