Wells Fargo banking option

Link your University of Nevada, Reno WolfCard to a voluntary Wells Fargo Everyday checking account

University of Nevada, Reno and Wells Fargo have teamed up to offer you optional added banking convenience with your linked UNR WolfCard.  This program offers you choices - you can choose to open an account and you can choose to link that account to your WolfCard for banking access.  Both optional services are available for your convenience.

Use your WolfCard as your official student ID, for campus privileges, and for your day-to-day financial needs on and off campus when it's linked to a Wells Fargo Everyday Checking account. Enjoy free access to cash at Wells Fargo ATMs nationwide and make purchases using your Personal Identification Number (PIN) with your linked UNR WolfCard.

  • Monthly service fee waived when linked to your UNR WolfCard
