Your OneCard has many uses. You can load funds on your Hornet Bucks Account and make purchases and payments all over campus and even at some off campus locations. Your card is also your library card, commuter pass for the Hornet Shuttle, Sacramento RT and LightRail, a printer card for the computer labs, a discounted photocopy card, and a way to get free admission to athletics events and various other student activities all over campus. 

Hornet Bucks

Herky the Hornet

Hornet Bucks is an on-campus debit system administered through Sac State. You can deposit money onto your Hornet Bucks account which creates a prepaid declining balance service. Each time you make a purchase, the purchase amount is deducted from your account. Hornet Bucks do not earn interest and they carry over from semester to semester. Hornet Bucks are accepted all over campus and even at some off campus locations (see Where Hornet Bucks Are Accepted).

To check your Hornet Bucks account balances and find a list of where you used your OneCard, Log into your My Sac State. Then just click on OneCard Statement.

Your OneCard also serves as your Printer/Photocopier Card. All regularly enrolled students who have paid their fees receive an allotment of free prints that can be used in any University PrintSmart lab. (CCE and ELI Students not eligible). The frequency and number of prints are determined by the IRT department (278-7941). These prints are loaded into your PrintSmart account on your OneCard. Your PrintSmart balance is only viewable at the printer release stations and will not be visible at the VTS Machines or on your Hornet Bucks Online Statement.

Note: Your PrintSmart account is a separate account from your Hornet Bucks account and does not roll over every academic year.
