Account Types

Information About the Account Types We Offer

Below are a list of the various types of accounts and plans that you can have on your card.

Nova Bucks™ Restricted Debit Account

Your Nova Bucks™ debit account is a restricted spending account. It allows you to enjoy the convenience of purchasing power all across campus and in the surrounding community without carrying cash or checks.  You will need to make a deposit into this account by depositing cash or check or making a deposit with a credit card.  Each time you use your Nova Bucks™ debit account, the amount of your purchase will automatically be deducted from your account. Once you put the money into your account, the balance stays with you until you graduate, or terminate all affiliations with Villanova University.

Dining Points

Each meal plan has a side account of points. These points can be used instead of cash to purchase items in any Dining Services location (including the convenience stores). Food points cannot be refunded or converted to cash. Food points do not carry over to the next semester.

V Print

The V Print program was designed to give students access to printing resources throughout the campus. On June 1st, all registered undergraduate and graduate students will automatically receive an annual print allowance as determined by their College. When you need to print, just visit one of the public areas, swipe your Wildcard at the print release station and print away. All unused funds will be cleared from your account by May 31 of the following year.
