Students can obtain a University Wildcard which validates their student status; however, only those students who can visit the Wildcard office in person will be issued an official Photo ID Wildcard. 

Students who cannot come to campus but would like to request a Wildcard must follow the steps listed below.

Requesting your Wildcard:

  1. Visit the Villanova Wildcard office website- Click here
  2. Make a deposit of $10.00 into your Nova Bucks account using your student ID number (found in your acceptance letter from the University and the email from UNIT with your Villanova login credentials)
  3. Once the money is deposited- send an email to and cc’d with request for your Wildcard to be mailed to you.

Your Wildcard will appear at the address associated with your student record. This card can be used to prove your status as a student at Villanova University.
