Seawolf Card

SSU ID card

The Seawolf Card is the official identification card of Sonoma State University. The card identifies you as a member of the Sonoma State community and entitles you to other privileges and uses on campus. By adding WolfBucks to your card, your Seawolf Card becomes a debit card usable at all Dining Services venues, the Bookstore, vending machines, the Rec Center, the Copy Center, and the Seawolf Service Center.

Where Do I Get My Seawolf ID Card?

Visit the Seawolf Service Center located on the first floor of Salazar Hall Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 5:00pm and Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm. For security purposes, please be sure to bring photo identification with you.

How Can I Manage My Seawolf ID Card?

We are excited to announce a new Seawolf Card Management (SCM) software that has been implemented as of June 1, 2023 to help students, staff, and faculty manage their Seawolf ID Card. The Seawolf Card Management (SCM) tile is a single location where you can manage aspects of campus dollars including WolfBucks, Dining Dollars, and Bonus Dollars and it can be accessed as a tile on the main screen of your SSU portal on The SCM will allow you to:

  • Deposit to your WolfBucks account - it takes less than 60 seconds to add value online and is available 24/7*.
  • Purchase an optional meal plan*.
  • View your account balances and transaction history.
  • View recent account activity.
  • Create low balance warnings.
  • Deactivate a lost ID card.
  • Virtual Card access (as long as you already have a photo in the system) is coming soon - you will be able to add your card to your Apple Wallet and Google Pay to use for on-campus purchases at participating locations.

*Staff and Faculty are able to purchase Wolfbucks and optional meal plans now. Students will be able to purchase Wolfbucks and optional meal plans later this summer.
