Print Credits

Each Fall and Spring semester, all active students receive $9 in complimentary print credits on their OneCard to accommodate accidental prints, printer jams, or misprints.


  • Print credits carry no cash value, and cannot be refunded or credited.
  • Print credits are "use or lose" and don't rollover each semester.
  • Charges for prints begin after the full $9 in print credits have been used.
  • Students can load funds on their OneCard through the Sac State OneCard mobile app, online through their Student Center at My Sac State, or at any Hornet Bucks Station

Hornet Bucks

The funds that students load onto your OneCard to pay for items bought on campus or at other participating off campus partners.


The physical card that you receive from the University to serve as your student identification card (Student ID). You can swipe this card to enter Sac State events, and you can use it like a debit card if funds (Hornet Bucks) are loaded onto the card. This card can also be presented at various off campus locations for special student only deals and discounts.
