What is OneCard?
OneCard is the University of Maine System (UMS) integrated card system that:
- serves as the official UMA identification card;
- provides access to library services;
- is utilized to pay for printing at both campuses;
- demonstrates UMA student/employee status for local community discounts;
- provides access to buildings or residence halls, if applicable; and
- can be used to purchase meals at the Moose Tracks Café on the Augusta Campus or at any UMS campus for dining purchases, including meal plans and Moose Bucks.
The OneCard does not expire.
Obtaining your UMA OneCard
UMA newly admitted students will be emailed a unique link to their university email address that allows for students to upload a photo of their choice for their OneCard. Links will be emailed to new students approximately 7-10 days following admission, so it’s very important for students to check their university email as the link is unique for each student. Students who misplace or mistakenly delete the link will need to request a new link by emailing Admissions from their university email account. The email request should include the student’s full name and student ID number. Admissions can be contacted at email@example.com
Once a student submits their information and preferred photo, UMA will create the OneCard and mail it to the student’s preferred address on file. Students who complete this process, but who are living in UMA dorms will have their OneCards distributed to them in person during move-in.
Continuing students who never obtained a OneCard at time of admission can email Admissions (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a unique link. Students also have the option to visit the UMA Augusta or Bangor campuses, or the UMA Lewiston Center locations to obtain a OneCard in person.
Faculty & Staff
Faculty and staff who need a OneCard can visit the Admissions Office located in the Randall Student Center on the UMA Augusta campus, the Enrollment & Advising Center located in Lewiston Hall on the Bangor campus, or the UMA Lewiston Center. A OneCard cannot be produced unless staff are able to verify identity via a driver’s license or other form of photo ID. After the OneCard has been produced, faculty and staff will need to have their supervisor and/or department work with UMA Security to enable door accesses on the OneCard.
Students needing a replacement card will need to visit one of the above listed locations or contact the Admissions Office by calling 207-621-3465 or emailing email@example.com. Please note, a $20 non-refundable fee is charged for all replacement cards, unless the card is defective or a student has had a change in name or status. To be eligible for a replacement card, students must be registered for the current semester.
Alumni who would like an Alumni card can visit one of the above listed locations or contact the Admissions Office by calling 207-621-3465 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, a $20 non-refundable fee is charged for all Alumni cards.
Accessing Library Services
Students must contact the library to activate OneCard for access to library resources. Call the library at 1.877.862.1234 x3349, email, chat with staff, or visit the Circulation desks at Katz Library in Augusta, or Nottage Library in Bangor in person to activate your card. Access to Interlibrary loan services and remote (off-campus) access to online resources is effective immediately after barcode activation.
Pay-per-Page Print Charge Policy
A four cents-per-page cost for black/white printing is assessed to all UMA students using computer print facilities on the Augusta and Bangor campuses. There is a ten cents-per-page cost for color printing. All UMA students needing to print must obtain a OneCard and add funds (Moose Buck$) to it.
This policy does cover all printers in any classrooms/labs used by students. Color printing in the specialized photo/art/architecture areas have different charges. When a student clicks on the printer icon to print, a pop-up box will appear alerting the student to the number of pages requested and the total cost of the print job. The student then may accept the charge against their funds on their ID card and receive the print, or cancel the request and have no funds deducted from their card.
Pay per copy
A seven-cents-per-page cost is assessed when using the photocopier in the Katz Library in Augusta. Seven cents-per-page is assessed for black/white copies when using the photocopier in UMA Bangor’s Nottage Library (Belfast Hall) and Eastport Hall computer lab, as well as the Augusta campus’ Randall student center computer lab. A ten cents-per-page charge is assessed for color copies – only in the computer labs.
There are many savings available when you show your OneCard.
Dining Services at the Moose Tracks Café
The Moose Tracks Café (located on the Augusta Campus-Randall Student Center) is open during the fall and spring semesters, and offers a variety of meals, sandwiches, soups, and beverages. To purchase food items with the OneCard, add funds (Moose Buck$) to it. When cashing out, present the OneCard at the register and receive your items tax-free!
An enhanced web portal called eAccounts provides easy management and review of accounts, as well as the ability to add funds. eAccounts may also be accessed by mobile app for iOS and Android devices and the ability to pay using Apple Wallet. A guide to eAccounts is available here.
