Coyote Card Use


Where can I use my Coyote Card?

Can I use Flex dollars at off-campus vendors?


  • Coyote Card
  • Coyote Cash
  • Flex
  • Pharos


Your Coyote Card will be your single most important piece of identification here at USD. This multi-purpose ID will be your identification, door access, meal, and library card.  View the list of accepted vendors

Note: Coyote Card Mobile does not replace your physical Coyote Card.  A Coyote Card is still required, it must be carried at all times and upon request must be shown or surrendered to USD Officials.


Note: off-campus vendors accept Coyote Cash only

Types of Funds:
