The Action Card serves multiple purposes at The University of Alabama. Your Action Card is the official University photo identification card. You will use your Action Card for access to: NCAA Athletic Events (for football games you will also need a ticket), University Libraries (in order to check out books), University Recreation Facilities (Student Recreation Center and Pool, Aquatic Center), Computer Labs, Student Health Center, Residence Hall Lobby Areas, Campus Entertainment Events and My Football Tickets.

The Action Card accounts are similar to a checking account: With a prepaid deposit of funds, you can then use your card to make purchases at participating locations. There are three types of Action Card accounts: Bama Cash, Dining Dollars and Meal Plans.

Bama Cash is an optional account, which, once established with a deposit of funds, allows students to pay for purchases at a wide variety of on and off-campus locations. For details, visit our Web site:

The Action Card online services ( allow cardholders access to their debit account information for both Bama Cash and Dining Dollars to check balances and review transaction history. Through Action Card online, cardholders can also deposit funds directly to Bama Cash via Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards.

The Action Card Office is located in 104 Student Services Center. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.5 p.m. Students can reach the office by phone at (205) 348-2288.
