The PolarExpress card is the official UAF photo identification card used by students, staff and faculty for access to UAF facilities and to make purchases.
Your PolarExpress card lets you check out library books, vote in student elections, and access health and other student services, and it lets you ride the borough bus system for free! The card’s magnetic stripe holds a unique key that provides secure access to residence halls, laboratories and the Student Recreation Center. You can deposit money into your Bear Bucks account, which can be used at all Dining Services locations, vending machines, photocopiers, the Wood Center counter and the UAF Bookstore. See the complete list at http://www.uafbearbucks.com.
You can access your account balance and add money to your PolarExpress card through eAccounts, a secure way to check all your stored value accounts (Bearbucks, Munch Money, copy card, etc.), add money to your card, view your transaction history, deactivate a lost or stolen card, and more.
