Braves Card

Every Ottawa University student is issued a Braves Card that serves a wide variety of purposes, including:

  • Official student ID
  • Meal plan card
  • Residence hall access
  • Payments
    • Vending machines throughout campus
    • Copies and prints in the Copy Center and computer labs
    • Braves Fan Shop items
    • Ala carte items in the Gibson Student Center, Hetrick Bistro
    • Laundry facilities in residence halls
  • Dining Dollar card
  • Braves Cash card

Additional funds can easily be added to this account on the Braves Card in a variety of ways.

First is through the ADM in the Gangwish Library, Pelton Lounge. The balance can be checked 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Second, funds can be added online with no fees. Online transactions are performed at http://bravescard.ottawa.edu. Funds can be set to automatically reload funds when the balance drops below a specific amount, or on a particular day of the week or month. 

Third,  parents can go online and add funds through the same site. Parents will need a student ID number and birth date in order to add funds to an account.

Yes, there is. Go to your app store and look for the “MyPay” app. 
This app utilizes funds from your Braves Card (student ID). 

A complete guide of how to set-up the app is available in the Office of Students Affairs. If you have any questions about your Braves Card or the app, don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Student Affairs.

These are funds that are automatically loaded on your Braves Card for use in the Gibson Student Center. The amount varies depending on which dining club membership you are signed up for. Any unused funds are eliminated at the end of each semester.

This is the most flexible account on the Braves Card. These funds can be used throughout campus for print, copy, vending and laundry services, as well as in the Hetrick Bistro.
