  • There is no minimum deposit. You may use cash, check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
  • You (or your parents)can make deposits to your account at the Buzz Card Office, the Student Union Information Desk, the Library, by mail, by using the online card office http://Community.BHSU.edu, or by using the Cash-to-Card machines located across campus

Uniprint/Pharos System

Uniprint/Pharos is a University-funded allowance for printing from the computer workstations in the Library, the Student Union, and the labs in Jonas Hall. A credit limit is established at the beginning of each semester to be used for printing and is loaded on your Buzz Card. Once the funds are depleted (for the semester) your Buzz Bucks account can be used for printing. Uniprint/Pharos funds expire at the end of each semester and do not carry over into the next semester.
