Need help using the SDSUCard machine? Check out our quick video that explains the steps.

* Now you can add funds to your SDSU Red ID (also known as your SDSUCard) from your smart phone, tablet or computer. Go to and create an account.

You can still add funds to your SDSUCard (recommended for all SDSU students, faculty and staff) using SDSUCard machines. These machines also allow users to purchase a Guest Copy Card. SDSUCard machines only take bills; no credit cards or coins.  See below for locations of bill changers if you need smaller bills. The SDSU Bookstore and the campus markets can add funds from credit cards to SDSUCards. Funds deposited on the SDSUCards work for printing, copying, and laundry, purchases in AztecShop Markets, the Bookstore, but not for meal plans.

The Print Service Office and the Library have no access to, or responsibility for, the SDSUCard machines. . If you have any questions regarding any policies and usage of these machines please contact the SDSUCard Office directly at (619) 594-6800 or (619) 594-3450. NOTE: Guest Copy Cards expire approximately one year after the date of purchase.
