Your ACT Card

Your Action Card or “ACT Card” is your official student ID for The University of Alabama!

The ACT Card is used for Bama Cash, Dining Dollars, meal plans, building access, NCAA athletic events, University recreation centers, the Student Health Center, campus entertainment events, and more!

On the card are three important accounts:

Bama Cash

Dining Dollars

When using Dining Dollars or Bama Cash to pay for pre-paid orders by phone or online such as pizza for delivery, you will use your 16 – digit number instead of your CWID.  Click here or go to myBama to find your 16 – digit number.

Meal Plans

You can check the balance of these accounts and transactions at any time through eAccounts*.
*To check on the number of Meal Plan swipes remaining, login to eAccounts and select Board Transactions. Then select a time frame. You will see the number of Meal Plan swipes used out of the total number you started with. Subtracting these two numbers will give you the remaining Meal Plan swipes you have left.

Mobile ACT Card

Students, faculty, and staff can add their ACT Cards in the Apple Wallet on iPhone and Apple Watch and in Google Pay on Android phones. 

You can use this digital ID just like a physical card!

You do not need a physical card to add to your mobile devices.

Instructions and system requirements can be found at Mobile ACT Card.
