Bank FAQ

What is the UNLV RebelCard?

It is the official photo identification card for University of Nevada, Las Vegas students, faculty, and staff. The RebelCard also serves as your library card, a stored value card for RebelCash accounts along with meal plan and Dining Dollars, as well as your building access card.

In addition, the RebelCard comes with the option to be linked to a Wells Fargo College Checking® account. This allows students to access ATMs and make PIN-debit purchases everywhere PIN pads are available*.

*Currently, there are no pin pads located on campus.

Enjoy the convenience of one card and use your RebelCard for your on-campus needs PLUS your day-to-day financial needs!
