My U Card


Your U Card has five accounts associated with it. This means that when you have activated the account(s) either by making a deposit or enrolling for classes, you can conveniently use your U Card as a way to pay for goods and services or get cash at an ATM.

You will use many of your U Card's features while you're at the University of Minnesota. The account access features of your U Card include: Gopher GOLD™ Value, FlexDine, Meal Plans, the Student Account and the TCF Bank U Card Checking account.
