Distance Learning Students - BG1 Card Application
Students who are officially identified as Distance Learning Students can apply to receive a BG1 Card. The cards will be printed without a photo. Students must be registered for classes for the current or future terms. The $25 charge will be applied to the Bursar account. 

Cardholder agreement and disclosure statement
BG1 Card Services would like to encourage all faculty, staff and students to read through our cardholder agreement and disclosure statement regarding the BG1 Card. 

BG Bucks Refund Request
Cardholders who withdraws from the University, graduates, or no longer works at the University can request a refund of their BG Bucks. Students who are continuing with the university can request refunds at the end of the spring semester. The refund process takes approximately 3-4 weeks and is sent in the form of a check to the cardholder’s address. A $10 processing fee will be assessed. If the balance on the BG Bucks account is below $10, a refund will not be processed.

Payroll deduction form
One of the many benefits a faculty or permanent staff member of BGSU receives is the option to use payroll deduction to make deposits to their BG Bucks account! The individual determines the amount that Payroll is authorized to deduct from each paycheck. Participation is completely voluntary and can be changed or stopped at any time! 

Blackboard (BG1 Card) User Request
Department contacts who need to access reports from the Blackboard software need to complete the form and submit to BG1 Card Services.
