You can add funds on your SSU ID card by going to the PHIL, a machine located just inside the front door of the King-Frazier Student Center (to the left of the BankMobile ATM), or next to the ATM in the Student Union. The PHIL will accept credit cards or cash. Information about terms and conditions related to card funds is located in the Cardholder Agreement that you sign when you receive your SSU ID Card.
