After a competitive selection process, Iowa State University chose U.S. Bank as its partner to offer students, faculty and staff the option to add banking functionality to the ISUCard. Iowa State University receives financial support from U.S. Bank primarily in the form of royalties and card stock which is used to support the ISUCard and other student programs. Students, Faculty and staff are not required to open an account with U.S. Bank to receive the ISUCard and they do not need to have a U.S. Bank account to use their ISUCard for other card-authorized campus services. Questions about the University’s partnership with U.S. Bank may be directed to the ISUCard Office at 515-294-2727 or by email to [email protected]
